Jaya TV raids: The people understand what is going on, says TTV Dinakaran

Operation Clean Money: IT raids Jaya TV premises, properties of TTV Dhinakaran

Apart from the office, IT officials are also searching Sasikala's nephew Vivek Jayaraman residence in Chennai and Jazz Cinemas, which is also owned by her family.

Income tax raids were conducted Thursday morning at the Jaya TV office in Chennai.

Speaking to reporters after conducting gho-pooja at his Adyar residence, Dhinakaran said the raids were aimed at removing his aunt Sasikala and him from politics.

Clarifying that raid was not conducted at his Chennai house, he said searches were on at his farmhouse in Puducherry and other places.


Former Tamil Nadu chief minister J Jayalalithaa started Jaya TV.

Notably, all these are being run by TTV Dhinakaran's faction. The central government is behind these raids.

Raid locations included Thanjavur, Thiruvarur, Trichy, Coimbatore and other districts at properties belonging to Sasikala's family members and associates.

"The raids have taken place just a day after the deputy secretary general (Dhinakaran) questioned demonetisation. Now, they will just claim that they got a tip off as a reason to not send a show cause notice ahead of the raids", he adds.


The Income Tax department also raided AIADMK Karnataka in-charge, Pugazhendi's house in Bengaluru's Domlur area. "We told the taxi company that the drivers will not be allowed to use their phones", said the official.

These raids will also impact the political situation in the state.

After the merger between Edappadi Palaniswami and O Panneerselvam, TTV Dhinakaran and VK Sasikala were ousted from AIADMK and a number of issues have been emerging between the factions. Since her death, they have been used as a tool in the factional war for the control of the AIADMK.

Nanjil Sampath, senior MLA close to Dinakaran said the raids were not surprising at all.


Meanwhile, BJP leader Subramanian Swamy too tried to wade into the controversy nearly claiming as if the raids were a reaction to his complaints against Sasikala made in a court but at the same time also lamenting why similar action was not being taken against Karunanidhi and his daughter, 2G scam accused M Kanimozhi.
