A former Panchayat President alleges that his own party worker demanded money to allow him to contest
Former Panchayat President of Achipatti in Pollachi, Easwaran belongs to the Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK).
Having been the Panchayat President in two successive elections in 2006 and 2011, he was not given a ticket this year.
And this, he says, is because he did not cough up Rs 30 lakh demanded by a ward secretary of the same party - just to allow him to contest.
