Kalaipuli S Thanu accuses Kayaar of fraud in Producers’ Council elections

Tamil Film Producers’ Council elections were held the last Saturday.  Election results were declared, and Kayaar has been elected the head of producers’ council. 


Kalaipuli S Thanu, who stood in the elections against Kayaar, gave an interview today. Kalaipuli S Thanu spoke: -


‘The Producers’ council elections were not held properly.  Retired magistrates as Jagadeesan and Venkatraman were appointed as election officials by the High Court, and the elections were held. 

Kayaar, who contested the elections for the post of Producers’ Council head, dubbed another language movie in Tamil, and received certification from censor board claiming that it is a direct Tamil movie.  I divulged the details to the magistrates.  But, they refused to pay heed.’ 


Also, Kayaar’s team violated the election norms and advertised.  After polling is over, the votes should be counted in presence of contestants with a video camera installed in the place.  It should be shown in television to those who cast their votes. But, it did not happen. 

For one and a half hours, even those who contested the elections were not allowed inside.  Also, the video TV was disconnected.  Then, they called us in. They did not show the polling machines to us, and showed just a television monitor and said that Kaayar has won the elections, and that I have lost the elections.  This is sheer violation of democracy. 

Although we pleaded that the ten polling machines be opened and shown to us, they did not heed our request.  Everyone who contested on behalf of our team underwent a similar plight. 

Those who received lesser votes have been declared the winners. It is condemnable. 

So, we are to file case in court against the election team.  Kayaar’s team gave us trouble without letting us function.  We would not get into such activity which would cripple the producers’ council. 


We thank those who cast their votes. Also, I convey my gratitude to K Balachander who blessed all the contestants in the elections.’
