Thiruvananthapuram | Cheriyan Philip has said that Chief Minister Oommen Chandy is targeting Senior Congress leader A.K. Antony in the SNC Lavlin case.

In a facebook post Thursday, Philip said it was Antony who held initial talks with the foreign company.

Here’s the full text of his comments on FB:

“It was in 1995-96, when the state faced acute power crisis, that Antony took the decision to revive three outdated power stations. It was Antony who held initial talks with the Lavlin company. The Lavlin deal is the child of Antony. Pinarayi is only the doctor who attended the delivery. Oommen Chandy aims at trapping Antony, who is possibly set to repatriate to Kerala with the support of the High Command – the cunning trick of killing two birds with a single shot.”
