Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) MP candidate Kanimozhi on Wednesday reacted on I-T raids that were conducted at her house in Thoothukudi on Tuesday.

Targetting the Central government, she said that in the past five years, "every government agency has been exploited," news agency ANI reported. 

She alleged that only "opposition leaders have been targetted repeatedly".

"Over the last 5 yrs, every government agency has been exploited. They've become a part of BJP. CBI, ED, RBI IT, EC all have been compromised. Only opposition leaders have been targeted repeatedly," the leader said. 


Earlier in the day, she said that the BJP cannot prevent her from winning in the ongoing elections.

She also dubbed the raids as "anti-democratic, deliberately planned and tested".

"BJP cannot prevent my success through this income tax raid. The raid is anti-democratic, deliberately planned and tested, and no documents have been seized," Kanimozhi told reporters here after completion of raids.

"They want to intimidate us through this. They have come to stop elections in Thoothukudi. DMK volunteers will be working with more enthusiasm," she added.
