Terming the episode as “shocking,” the Left party said it reflected how money power can “debase” the country’s democratic polity and asked the EC to conduct a probe into the matter. 

“It is not only shocking and shameful that some leaders think that they can buy anything with money. It shows how the money power can debase the democratic polity of the country,” CPI stalwart D Raja said without naming any leader or a party. 

Raja, a Rajya Sabha MP from the state, also asked the EC to find the people, who are allegedly involved in the “unethical and illegal bargain.” 

The crime branch of the Delhi police on Monday booked Dinakaran for trying to bribe an Election Commission official to get the AIADMK’s poll symbol of ‘Two Leaves’ in the by-election to the RK Nagar Assembly seat which was later cancelled.
