Elangovan justifies I-T crackdown
Former TNCC president E.V.K.S. Elangovan on Tuesday justified the Income Tax searches conducted at the premises owned by the family members of V.K. Sasikala, the jailed former aide of late Chief Minister Jayalalithaa. “I do not think they are politically motivated. Sasikala and her family have been looting the State for over 20 years. These raids should have taken place when Jayalalithaa was alive,” he said.
“Tamil Nadu’s leaders have gone to jail because they are corrupt and because they have taken bribes. Today, I think they should bring Sasikala from the jail in Bengaluru and interrogate her,” he said.
Mr. Elangovan’s stand on the issue is at variance with that of TNCC president Su Thirunavukkarasar.
