Palaniswami Supporters Seem to be Confident about Trust Vote
As per reports, suspicious deposits worth more than Rs. 4.5 lakh crore made by around 18 lakh people, are under “verification” by the I-T department. Non-statutory letters may be issued to those people who have not responded to SMS and e-mail queries. Under the verification process, the source of deposits will be asked from these people on the e-filing portal.
As Tamil Nadu is going to witness a trust vote on Saturday after 30 years, CM Palaniswami and his supporters are reportedly quite confident about fetching most of the votes. The group led by CM Palaniswami has already 124 MLAs.
On the other hand, Panneerselvam urged to AIADMK MLAs not to support the new Tamil Nadu CM in the trust vote.
Reports say that Palaniswami would require 117 votes to come in power.
