Dhinakaran's faction alleged that this is a personal revenge against him. They also alleged that ruling faction is trying to take control of Jaya TV and Namadhe MGR.
Dhinakaran has said that this is a political vendetta by the central government. "The Centre is trying to threaten us. There was no raid in my house, but my farmhouse at Puducherry is being searched. It is just a gimmick to say that over 150 places were searched", he asserted.
He also questioned why action was not taken on the names in Sekhar Reddy's dairy, the tax authorities took during the raids in his house.
Moreover, the residence of Sasikala’s husband Natarajan in Thanjavur was also raided.
