TTV denies reports on ED’s summons
Answering reporters’ queries, Mr Dhinakaran denied media reports that he had been summoned again by the Enforcement Directorate for recording his statement on April 22. “They (ED) have conveyed to me that they would call me again. If I receive any communication, I will inform you.” To another query, he said he did not view the development as a case of political victimisation.
As for Chief Minister M.K. Stalin’s statement that he would call a meeting of all parties on the NEET issue, Mr Dhinakaran wanted the ruling party instead to take steps for getting a bill adopted by Parliament to secure exemption for Tamil Nadu.
