Governor to seek explanation from DMK govt on AIADMK’s charges?

Banwarilal Purohit

Chennai: A day after an AIADMK delegation led by party coordinator O Panneerselvam and joint coordinator Edappadi K Palaniswami called on Governor Banwarilal Purohit and submitted a memorandum alleging ‘vendetta politics, corruption and collection’ by the DMK, there are speculations in political circles that the Governor might seek an explanation from the government.

Questioning the way ‘tender rules are being flouted by the government’, the memorandum also said that ‘ultra-constitutional powers’, comprising Chief Minister M K Stalin’s family members, were controlling the government.

The AIADMK alleged that the ruling party was politicising the Kodanadu murder case probe with ulterior motive.

“They are trying to include me and a few others (in the murder case),” Palaniswami alleged after meeting the Governor.

“No court has ordered a reinvestigation,” Palaniswami said and accused the DMK government of acting in favour of criminals.

Palaniswami said, “This has nothing to do with their poll promise. This is something that has to be overseen by law, and is at the last phase of investigation.”
