Elan­go­van jus­ti­fies I-T crack­down

The Hindu - - CHENNAI - Special Cor­re­spon­dent

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.
