Chennai, August 10(BPNS)

The AIADMK which is in a corner following back-to-back raids on the residences and premises of two of its senior leaders and former ministers has said that the party would face these politically motivated raids, legally and politically.

Party condemned the raid conducted at the premises of former minister and AIADMK leader S.P. Velumani by the Directorate of Vigilance and Anti- Corruption( DVAC).

AIADMK coordinator O. Panneerselvam and co-coordinator, Edappadi K Palaniswami in a joint statement said that the DMK government is practicing politics of vendetta against the AIADMK and warned that the party would not be cowed down by such actions.

The leaders who are both former Chief Ministers of the state said that the DMK government, instead of concentrating on the welfare activities of the people in the midst of Covid pandemic was instead targeting AIADMK leaders and practicing political vendetta.

The senior leaders also said that it was not fair to level charges against former ministers who are senior leaders of the AIADMK, before ascertaining the truth. The AIADMK leaders said that the party would be fighting these fabricated cases against its leaders and would be in the forefront for providing service to the people of Tamil Nadu during the trying times.

It may be noted that the DVAC had conducted a raid at the residence and premises of former transport minister and AIADMK leader, M.R. Vijayabhaskar on July 22.  With the raids on the residence and office premises of S.P.Velumani in 51 places, the AIADMK is clear that the DMK government would unleash a series of raids and investigations against its senior leaders.
