Nexus alleged

Kerala Congress (Jacob) leader T.M. Jacob alleged that the State government was involved in an unholy alliance with the ‘lottery mafia'. Speaking at the district convention of the party, Mr. Jacob said that the lottery scam has brought the association between the Left Democratic Front (LDF) and Santiago Martin, the main promoter of lotteries from outside the State, to the limelight. He also claimed that about Rs.27.5 crore has been siphoned off daily by the lottery operators from the State.
