Keep co-op society officials out of election duty; DMK

The DMK on Tuesday urged the Election Commission to ensure that officials of co-operative societies/banks are not involved in election-related work in Tamil Nadu.

In a representation to the poll panel, the DMK alleged if the officials of co-operative societies/banks are involved in poll duties, they would abuse their power in favour of the ruling AIADMK, impacting free and fair elections.

According to DMK, there are 18,775 co-operative societies/banks functioning in Tamil Nadu under different government departments and they are under the administration of elected bodies, totally controlled by the ruling AIADMK members as Presidents and Vice Presidents of the Board of Directors.

In a separate complaint, the DMK urged the poll body to pass orders for keeping away T. Senthilkumar, Chairman and R.S. Isabella, Managing Director of Repco Group of Financial Institutions, from the administration of the Repco bank, to appoint an Administrator under its control and to monitor cash transaction of Repco bank and its all branches.

It also sought that the Election Commission ensure that no loan is disbursed by the bank to any association until the general elections are over, to instruct the Reserve Bank of India and the Finance Ministry to continuously monitor the bank’s cash transactions and to strictly check every vehicle belonging to REPCO bank or engaged by it.
