Puthiya Tamizhagam President Dr. K. Krishnasamy today said that the raids conducted in the house of former Tamil Nadu Chief Secretary P.S. Ramamohan Rao, would help to cleanse the State machinery in the long run.
“Despite the problems being faced by the common man and public, demonetisation has helped to curb corruption to a certain extent. Such steps should be converted into a movement, which will help in eradication of corruption that is the root cause for all the ills being faced in the society,” Krishnasamy told reporters here.
“The raids at Rao’s residences and reported seizure of cash, gold and documents are a welcome step,” he said adding that such raids in the long run will help cleanse the State machinery from the corruption.
Referring to the seizure of money from Central Cooperative banks in Salem, he said that those who indulged in stashing the money should be arrested.
Krishnasamy also sought action against the Vice-Chancellors, who met an individual like Sasikala, who was acting like a extra-constitutional authority.
The Puthiya Tamizhagam would hold a conference in Tirunelveli on January 7, ‘Protection of Human Rights’, to put pressure on the Centre and State governments to bring in a legislation to prevent the honour killings in the State, he said.
