A private news channel has exposed through it’s sting operation the much doubted Tamilnadu’s dirty politics. The sting operation which happened between April and May is out now. The footage shows an MLA confirming the compromise on Trust Vote in Tamilnadu Assembly that was much debated due to the alleged control over the MLA’s by lodging them in Kovathoor Holiday resort not allowing any one to visit them including their own relatives.
The footage also showed MLA’s from both the camps – OPS and Sasikala accepting the buying and selling of support to undermine each other. A staggering 1 to 10 crores of cash was offered along with gold. Since these claims are of extremely disturbing and serious in nature, if they were proved, it would nullify the Trust Vote and the victory making the assembly, illegitimate.
Opposition leader MK Stalin who filed a case earlier on the genuineness of the trust vote may find a reason to rejoice since there is documentary evidence now. This may lead to Speaker ordering the probe but the irony is, it is the same Speaker who did not agree to the request put forth by the opponents then for conducting the Secret Ballot and is to be seen whether he would be acting honestly this time. Governor must also seek a report on the alleged fixing. The Ethics Committee of Tamil Nadu State Assembly must convene to begin the proceedings of Suo Moto disqualification.
The news is the hot topic last night on social media and was trending across India on top.
