AIADMK’s T.T.V Dinakaran lashed out at the Tamil Nadu Government for carrying out raids at the Late Jayalalithaa’s Poes Garden residence. Dinakaran called last night’s raid as a “betrayal” and a “political vendetta.” The nephew of Sasikala accused Tamil Nadu CM E. Palaniswami and his deputy O. Panneerselvam of indulging in “vendetta politics.”
Dinakaran was quoted saying, “Poes Garden is a place where our beloved Amma (Jayalalithaa) lived, it is like a temple. E Palaniswami and Panneerselvam have betrayed Amma’s soul.” He also attacked PM Modi and Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, “PM Modi and Arun Jaitley are trying to destroy our family using the IT Department.”
Yesterday night, the Income Tax Department raided two rooms at the Poes Garden residence. The limited raid was done to get information on V. K. Sasikala. A senior tax officer explained, “It was a limited exercise. We searched only the office of S. Poongundran and two rooms of Sasikala.”
An official reported the IT officials seized a laptop, a desktop and four pen drives from Sasikala’s rooms. Sasikala continued to live at the Poes Garden residence even after Jayalalithaa passed away.
