Swapna Suresh, an accused in the gold smuggling case, has made serious allegations against Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan. Swapna Suresh alleged that Vijayan’s close aide and former Kerala chief secretary M Sivasankar was involved in the Brahmapuram waste management works deal. This statement of Swapna Suresh has come at a time when the waste management plant in Brahmapuram has been on fire for several days and the air of Kochi has become menacing because of it.
In a post on Facebook, Swapna Suresh alleged that Chief Minister P Vijayan has not responded to the fire at the Brahmapuram Waste Management Plant because the former Chief Secretary to the Chief Medical Officer of Kerala was involved in the deal to build the plant. Directly attacking the Prime Minister, Suresh said, ‘You must be wondering why I am raising this issue, the reason for that is that I also live in Kochi and came to Bengaluru after being save but I am not dead’.
Kochi air poisoned by garbage plant fire
Let us tell you that on March 2, there was a fire in the Brahmapuram garbage factory, because of which Kochi’s air quality deteriorated and many people had to leave the city and go to safer places. Relief and rescue work is going on to extinguish the fire and so far more than 5 thousand liters of water have been used to extinguish the fire. The army administration, the police and the area are currently putting out the fire. The fire is currently under control but the smoke pollution is still dangerous.
The Brahmapuram garbage plant fire case has also reached the Kerala High Court. The High Court has asked the Ernakulam District Collector to file an affidavit in the matter. Along with this, the High Court said that the rules were not followed in the management of solid waste at the Brahmapuram garbage plant. Say that M Shivshankar is already in the custody of the ED till March 21 in the money laundering case.

What is a gold smuggling case
In July 2020, customs officials at the Thiruvananthapuram International Airport seized gold articles weighing more than 30 kg and worth around Rs 15 crore. This gold was brought by hiding in the bags from the UAE consulate. Based on an informer’s information, the Customs Department seized the gold. UAE consular officer Swapna Suresh is the main accused in the case. The name of M Sivasankar, the former Chief Secretary of Kerala, Chief Minister P. Vijayan, also surfaced in this case. He was subsequently removed from the post.
It is noteworthy that Swapna Suresh also accused Chief Minister Vijayan in the gold smuggling case and told him about his involvement in smuggling. Swapna had told a court in Kochi that in 2016, when Vijayan was in Dubai, a bag full of money was sent to him. Now Swapna Suresh has also made serious allegations against the Chief Minister and former Chief Secretary M Shivshankar regarding the fire at the Brahmapuram Waste Management Site.
