ED is working in the interest of BJP: MV Govindan

Thiruvananthapuram: CPM state secretary MV Govindan has alleged that the Enforcement Directorate (ED) is working in the interest of the BJP. “The freezing of the CPM Thrissur district committee account by the ED was done in the interest of the BJP,” Govindan told reporters in Thiruvananthapuram on Friday. “The ED and the Income Tax Department were involved in several acts in Thrissur and Kerala even during the election time. Their objective was to weaken the election work of CPM. CPM had always filed IT returns. CPM has only one PAN number all over India. That is AAATC0400A. CPM’s account is in Bank of India. The bank officials themselves had written the wrong PAN number. He wrote ‘J’ instead of ‘T’ in PAN. “The IT officials who inspected the bank on March 5 froze the account and asked the party not to spend the money withdrawn. Although the IT department had no power to stop bank transactions done as per law, the party decided to comply. This was to avoid unnecessary discussion on this topic. Later the bank officials admitted that it was their mistake. He had also given a letter to CPM on this matter,” Govindan said.
