2 senior leaders in TTV camp face arrest

Close on the heels of they created ‘ruckus’ at the State Secretariat and made accusations against Chief Minister Edappadi K Palaniswami,Thanga Tamilselvan and P Vetrivel, both disqualified MLAs and supporters of TTV Dhinakaran, are now facing arrest, as the police have booked cases against them.

Even as the police formed special teams to lookout for them, reports said they have gone into hiding.

Addressing reporters at the Secretariat on Thursday evening, the duo alleged that family members of the Chief Minister were being awarded the high cost Public Works Department (PWD) contracts recently through the ‘single tender’ route for the projects.

Fisheries minister D Jayakumar dismissed the allegations as being “politically motivated”.

The rebels, Thanga Tamilselvan and P Vetrivel, made the allegations to reporters outside the secretariat complex at Fort St George. Earlier, Vetrivel was denied entry.

Vetrivel said, “The tenders were awarded to a sole bidder violating the tender rules. The loss to the exchequer is huge. This is not Amma’s government, but that of corrupt EPS government. EPS’ family and associates are looting government money. Let the governor take up suo motu cognisance and inquire,”
