‘Stalin trying to tarnish image of Jaya, govt.’
Law Minister C.Ve. Shanmugam on Sunday refuted the allegations made by the DMK in the context of the alleged break-in at the Kodanad estate bungalow and said that all the documents purportedly linking Chief Minister Edappadi K. Palaniswami with the incident were fabricated and false.
Speaking to reporters at Tindivanam, Mr. Shanmugam said that if former Tehelka editor Samuel Mathew was really interested in raising the issue, he should have submitted all the documents in the court.
He challenged DMK president M.K. Stalin to face a CBI probe into the deaths of Ramesh of Anna Nagar and Sadiq Basha, close aide to former Telecom Minister A. Raja. Mr. Stalin was trying to tarnish the image of former CM Jayalalithaa and the government, he said.
