Thiruvananthapuram, Dec 15(UNI) Kerala Finance Minister T M Thomas Isaac today held the previous Congress-led United Democratic Front (UDF) Government responsible for the additional financial burden involved in the Kerala State Transport Project (KSTP).

Reacting to Opposition Leader Oommen Chandy's allegation against him on the KSTP, Dr Isaac told reporters here that the ongoing Vigilance probe on the project would bring out the facts.

He said certain officials were responsible for stopping payments to Pati- BEL, contractors of the project, resulting in suspension of work by the Malaysian company midway.

Dr Isaac said the government would go ahead with its case against Pati-BEL, even though the contract was again awarded to it to complete the work.
