The people understand what is going on, says TTV Dinakaran

I-T officials searched the residence of Sasikala's nephew Vivek Jayaraman, who controls Jaya TV and Jazz Cinemas that are owned by her family members.

Tamil television channel Jaya TV in Chennai woke up to quite some shock on Thursday, November 9, morning as Income Tax officials began searches at its office.

Chennai: Earlier this morning, Jaya TV Headquarters were raided by Taxmen, who were looking for documents and files that could be related to Taxes, since there have been doubts about Tax Evasion from some sources.

Reports says that after the death of J Jayalalithaa both Jaya TV and Dr Namadhu have only functioned as the mouthpiece for the AIADMK.

Of the 187 premises where the searches were conducted, most of it were in Tamil Nadu, a handful in Hyderabad, three in New Delhi, and one in Bengaluru, he said.

Started by late Chief Minister Jayalalithaa, Jaya tv played a vital role of the AIADMK not only as a news channel but also as an entertainment channel playing movies of the matinee idols MGR and Jayalalithaa.

"We saw that there were raids against actor Vishal when he spoke out against the government".

CNN-News18 said that friends and family members of Sasikala and Dhinakaran are being raided across four states in 187 locations.

"I heard that raids are taking place at my farm house, it is a lonely place. They can't scare us with raids", he said.

Chennai: Sidelined All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK) leader TTV Dinakaran on Thursday said the Centre is day dreaming if it believes that it can cause his faction any harm by conducting raids. "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 list of locations that were raided reads like a family directory of jailed AIADMK leader VK Sasikala.

Following the factional divide in the ruling AIADMK, Jaya TV has been critical of the government led by chief minister Edappadi K. Palaniswami and deputy chief minister O. Panneerselvam.

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