De­mand­ing CM’s res­ig­na­tion over HC or­der for probe not right: BJP

Sunday Express - - TAMIL NADU -

IT is not right to blame the Chief Min­is­ter Edap­padi K Palaniswami or de­mand his res­ig­na­tion over the Madras High Court or­der di­rect­ing a CBI in­quiry into al­le­ga­tions against him, BJP State pres­i­dent Tamil­i­sai Soundar­ra­jan said here on Satur­day.

“The AIADMK has de­cided to ap­peal against the or­der and we must wait for the fi­nal or­der. It is not right to say the Chief Min­is­ter should step down from his post. In­ves­ti­ga­tions should be car­ried out thor­oughly about cor­rup­tion charges against any­one. DMK lead­ers con­tin­ued in their posts though op­po­si­tion par­ties de­manded their res­ig­na­tions when they were ac­cused in 2G and other scams,” Tamil­i­sai told news per­sons at the Coim­bat­ore In­ter­na­tional Air­port on her way to Salem for a party meet­ing.

On re­ports of Gov­er­nor Ban­war­i­lal Puro­hit’s state­ment on cor­rup­tion in the ap­point­ment of vice chan­cel­lors, Tamil­i­sai said the Gov­er­nor had not de­nied it.
