      Chennai, Nov 9: Casting doubts that the multiple raids conducted by the Income Tax (IT) department on the offices of Jaya TV and several close aides of sidelined AIADMK leader VK Sasikala on Thursday morning as a part of its "Operation Clean Money" are 'politically motivated', Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Subramanian Swamy raised a question about why no similar raids were being conducted against DMK supremo M Karunanidhi and his daughter Kanimozhi.

      Although in his tweet, the Rajya Sabha BJP MP did not fully write the name of Karunanidhi and Kanimozhi, those who follow politics in the country could easily infer what Swamy wanted to say.

      "In addition to data on Sasikala in the courts I had given a 30 page Note to Authorities on MK's and daughter's frauds. Why no raids yet?" Swamy tweeted.

      The searches at the Tamil television channel, which is perceived to be politically disposed of in favour of deposed AIADMK leaders Sasikala and her nephew TTV Dhinakaran, were conducted over alleged tax evasion.

      Also, the allegation covers aspects like shell companies, dubious investments, fund flow and fudging of accounts, income tax sources told PTI.

      In fact, the raids on at least 187 locations in several cities have come days after Prime Minister Narendra Modi paid a "courtesy" visit to Karunanidhi's house in Chennai.

      Moreover, the DMK also cancelled its previously announced protest to mark the first anniversary of demonetisation on Wednesday.
