AIADMK to raise issue of DMK funding Communists

AIADMK Rajya Sabha MP Sasikala Pushpa is likely to move a petition with the ECI regarding the multi-crore transaction between the DMK and its allies. The DMK had declared with the ECI that it had paid Rs 15 crore each towards the election expenses to the CPI and Kongunadu Makkal Desiya Katchi and Rs 10 crore to the CPM. Curiously, the CPM’s poll expenses reportedly did not account for the aforesaid sum received from the DMK.

The CPM has so far only added fuel to the fire by not going public on the issue of their poll expenses, which has kept tongues wagging in the political circles.
