Kozhikode: BJP state president K Surendran said that BJP does not have any link in the seizure of black money in Kodakara. What we are seeing is the false campaigning unleashed against the party by a section of CPM and the media, he said addressing the media.
Surendran also affirmed that he had not spoken to BJP candidate from Sulthan Bathery C K Janu and she did not demand even a rupee. We had not given even a rupee to C K Janu and thinks she is being humiliated for being a tribal leader. “The audio clip is fabricated and it is not mine. C K Janu can call me any time if she is in need of money. She has the freedom to do that. The audio clip that surfaced may be due to the issues inside their party,” Surendran said.
Surendran said the C K Janu was our party candidate and has not demanded money from us. She has called me but the necessary part from the audio clip could have been avoided.
“The party is not engaged in any money dealings and a smokescreen is being created to trap the party. Many of the leaders are being called for interrogation giving no reasons at all. Many have appeared for interrogation and have not moved the court or feigned sick. I do not know if the money seized in Kodakara is black money or white money,” Surendran said.
Surendran called for a press meet after his name was dragged into the Kodakara hawala heist and the probe team widening the investigation to more leaders. JRP state treasurer Praseetha has alleged that BJP had paid Rs 10 lakh to C K Janu to woo her back to the NDA fold. The telephonic talk between Surendran and Praseetha came into public domain the other day.
