KM Mani has done nothing wrong, we stand by him, says Kerala CM
No one has pressurised KM Mani to resign, it was his own decision and we accepted it.

Thiruvananthapuram: Kerala Chief Minister Oommen Chandy claimed that neither United Democratic Front (UDF) nor Congress asked for state finance minister KM Mani's resignation.

He said, "It was Mani and his party's decision that he will step down. The government and UDF feel that Mani has done nothing wrong. We stand by him."

On Tuesday, Mani resigned in the wake of the High Court observations against him in the bar bribery case. Putting up a brave face, 82-year-old Mani, who is also the Law minister, told reporters after day long hectic parleys with party colleagues, that he was resigning as he respected judiciary.

"I am resigning to express my respect and regard to judiciary as a law minister," he said. The decision came a day after observations were made against him by the Kerala High Court in the bar case.

Mani said he had spoken to the chief minister, and his resignation letter had already been sent to him. He also thanked the chief minister and his ministerial colleagues for all their support and also shared his love for them.

"I am resigning. But I will continue to provide unstinting support to UDF," Mani had said.
