The minister of state for finance rejected deposed AIADMK leader TTV Dhinakaran’s charge of conspiracy.
Tiruchirappalli: Union minister Pon Radhakrishnan on Saturday said there was no conspiracy in the raids conducted on premises linked to jailed AIADMK leader V K Sasikala and her relatives and held that the Income Tax department’s actions were based on information.
The minister of state for finance rejected deposed AIADMK leader TTV Dhinakaran’s charge of conspiracy. Dhinakaran had alleged that the multi-city searches at 187 places conducted since November 9 were a “conspiracy” aimed at ousting him and his jailed aunt from politics.
“The income tax raids are based on information and documents collected by the department...There is no conspiracy in this,” Mr Radhakrishnan said. I-T raids, he said, went beyond state, and caste factors.
