Kochi: Yuva Morcha state Secretary Sandeep G Varier has exposed film director Aashiq Abu and his wife actress Rima Kallingal for not remitting the money collected under the cover of Chief Minister’s flood relief fund.
Sandeep Varier shared the RTI document on his Facebook page, claiming the lapse from the director. The amount of money collected for flood relief has not been remitted to the state government says the finance ministry in the RTI report.
The allegations are that a large sum of money were collected from a program for flood relief work which was to be given to the government. But the RTI query shows that not a single cent of the money was paid to the chief minister’s relief fund.
Aashiq Abu and his team had organized the Karuna Flood Relief Program last November, with ticket worth Rs 500 and 2000. There were also reports that the artists participating in the event performed without taking any remuneration.
However, the RTI query has stated that till date the state has not been paid the amount.
