KANCHEEPURAM: Janata party chief Subramanian Swamy has appealed to voters to send at least five out of the 190 candidates that the BJP-Janata Party combine has fielded in Tamil Nadu, to the assembly in the April 13 elections.They would be sentinels for guarding against corruption, he said, campaigning for BJP candidate K T Raghavan at Chengalpattu here on Wednesday.If people would send five or 10 of their candidates to the assembly, they would see to it that no shady deals are put across, but make a public furore over wrong deals, he said.Swamy made strong cause against the “pervasive corruption” in which, he alleged, both DMK and AIADMK were partners.

CHENNAI: BJP’s Tamil Nadu unit on Wednesday demanded the resignation of Chief Minister M Karunanidhi over the alleged transportation of money meant for voters in police vehicles. “The Election Commission’s submission in Madras High Court that even money was being distributed in police jeeps only confirms continuing violations of electoral rules by the ruling party,” a party statement said.”Karunanidhi who is heading the police department should immediately resign owning responsibility for transportation of money in police van,” it said. The BJP said unless the Election Commission “opened its both eyes”, polls would not be fair under the Karunanidhi government.
