Nadigar Sangam plans serious action against SarathPublished: January 18, 2016
Alleging that its repeated requests and reminders to former president R Sarathkumar for submission of accounts for previous years proved futile, the Nadigar Sangam has said it would file a complaint with the Economic Offences Wing against Sarath and other former office-bearers.
Talking to journalists after executive committee meeting in Chennai on Sunday, Nasser, president of Nadigar Sangam, said, “As the complete accounts of the SIAA for the year 2014-15 and the accounts of the Charitable Trust for the years 2013-2014 and 2014-2015 have not been submitted with proper receipts despite three months having passed from the time former office-bearers demitted office, it has been decided to lodge a complaint against the president, secretary and the treasurer of the previous term with the economic offences wing.
Nadigar Sangam treasurer Karthi said, “Usually, accounts must be submitted on the day a team demits office. However, we chose to be patient and not initiate any action because any such move could be misconceived. We fixed a period of three months and waited for them to submit the accounts, but in vain.”
Stating that they discussed several issues thoroughly during the meeting and passed resolutions on them, Nasser also said that the Sangam had passed a resolution to cancel the deal struck between SPI Cinemas and the Nadigar Sangam Charitable Trust by paying SPI Cinemas a sum of Rs 2.50 crore.”
