New Delhi:

Tainted former Tamil Nadu chief secretary Rama Mohan Rao on Tuesday broke his silence for the first time since income tax raid at his residence and said that nobody would have dared to do this to him if Jayalalithaa was still alive. “If madam had been alive, would this happen to Tamil Nadu? What about people's security?” he asked. 

Addressing a press conference on Tuesday, the former bureaucrat claimed that he is still the Tamil Nadu Chief Secretary as no transfer orders have been given to him. 

Furthermore, Rao claimed that the gold and money found in his house during CBI raid is nothing but property of his family, “They found Rs 1,12,320 in my house, gold that belongs to my wife and daughter, and silver articles and ornaments of God around 20-25 kg.”

Claiming that the raid on his house was Centre’s assault on the state, he said, “Isn't this unconstitutional assault? Where's the state govt? Who's permission did CRPF get to enter my house?”

“They did not have any search warrant against me. The search warrant had name of my son,” he said.

Former TN Chief Secy said that he is being targeted and he fears for his life. Rao said that he will go to the people's court on this 'unconstitutional assault' on him. He also made public the Income Tax department's documents pertaining to raids conducted at his residence. 

Rubbishing media reports of a secret chamber in his house, the IAS officer said that it was only a store room.
