Alappuzha District Collector T V Anupama had recently submitted a report to the government, stating there was large scale violations of Kerala Land Conservation Act and Conservation of Paddy Land and Wetland Act.

Media reports also suggest that Mr. Chandy would leave for Delhi on Tuesday itself to call on the central leadership of the NCP to ensure their support in the wake of the HC rap putting a question mark over his position in the LDF cabinet.

NCP state leadership on Tuesday chose to leave the decision on the demand for Chandy's decision to the party's parliamentary board.

Chandy is the Nationalist Congress Party nominee in the LDF ministry. "We will look into the complete judgement and the right decision would be taken at the appropriate time", he said.
