DMK demands IT, Election commission to come clean on cash seizures ; questions its bias in favour of ruling party

Covai Post Network

DMK leaders are demanding that the IT department and the Election Commission must name all the political party leaders and workers from whom cash seizures have been made.

DMK spokesperson TKS Elangovan and other leaders asserted that if only the DMK people were being named, the conduct of the officials would come into question.

“The Election Commission has seized over Rs.250 crore worth of cash, valuables in Tamil Nadu. It should declare the names of the people from whom the seizures were made,” the DMK spokesperson said.

Clearly the attitude of the EC and IT department was partial towards the ruling party and its friendly parties, Elangovan alleged.

In Vellore recently, the IT department seized about Rs.11.5 crore cash from a cement warehouse belonging to a DMK leader.

The DMK leader alleged that in some cases, the media was being tipped off and searches involving leaders of ruling party and its allies were hidden from public gaze.

Regarding the huge seizure of cash from Vellore, the EC would take a decision whether to hold Lok Sabha polling on April 18 or not.
