Tamil Nadu 200 Crore Bribery: Tamil Nadu BJP chief K Annamalai has made public a long list of assets worth Rs 1.34 lakh crore on Friday (April 14). Releasing the list, Annamalai claimed that the property is held by prominent DMK leaders including Chief Minister MK Stalin’s son and Sports Minister Udhayanidhi Stalin. The list includes Ministers Durai Murugan, EV Velu, K Ponmudi, V Senthil Balaji and former Union Minister S Jagathrakshakan among others.
K Annamalai has named this silt as ‘DMK files’. Annamalai targeted CM MK Stalin, alleging that he was given a bribe of two hundred crore rupees by Stalin to favor a company in a contract case for Chennai Metro Rail before the 2011 assembly elections. He alleged that the money was paid through shell companies. That company was investigated in the US for bribery.
K Annamalai’s expensive watch
It’s a joke
Responding to K Annamalai’s allegations, DMK MP RS Bharathi said that it is a joke. They said, "There is not a single allegation of payment of bribe. All the candidates listed by Annamalai have given details of their assets in their affidavits. If there is even one violation, any citizen can challenge the election."
An attempt to divert attention from the Adani-Arudhara scam
Responding to Annamalai’s allegations, Bharathi said, "LIC Bhawan was built decades ago for Rs 87 crore. Now it is worth thousands of crores. All our leaders will approach the court, and they will have to appear in the court."
RS Bharti challenged BJP leader Annamalai to file a case against him to prove his bribery charges of Rs 200 crore. They said, "Annamalai is trying to divert attention from Adani’s name in Hindenburg report and Arudhara scam."
On alleged corruption in Chennai Metro Rail, he asked what the central probe agency CBI was doing since 2014.
