PMK leader Anbumani Ramadoss on Saturday submitted a petition to Governor Banwarilal Purohit requesting he call for a report from Tamil Nadu Chief Minister K.Palaniswami on corruption charges levelled against the AIADMK government.

The petition, submitted by a delegation led by Ramadoss, comes in the wake of news reports alleging payouts made to some state ministers by businessman J.Sekhar Reddy.

In the petition, the PMK, listing out various charges against the government, urged Purohit to call for a report from the Chief Minister in the public interest, in respect of the allegations.

“We also hope that in exercise of your larger constitutional role, you will, if you find Chief Minister’s report unsatisfactory, constitute a fact finding committee headed by former Supreme Court Judge to go into the issues set out in this representation, ascertain the veracity and order appropriate action,” it said.
