Jayalalithaa flays Karunanidhi

Chennai, March 19, 2013, (IANS) :

 Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J. Jayalaltihaa Tuesday ridiculed DMK leader M. Karunanidhi for quitting the UPA, saying he should have done this in 2009 when the LTTE was crushed.

She accused Karunanidhi of covering up his earlier blunder when he failed to act when Colombo militarily crushed the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE).

"The plan of Karunanidhi will not succeed and the people of Tamil Nadu will teach him a lesson," she said. "People are fed up with such dramas enacted by Karunanidhi."


Jayalalithaa attacked Karunanidhi for demanding that a resolution against Sri Lanka be passed in Indian parliament.

"It is only in the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) (that) amendments to the (US sponsored anti-Sri Lankan resolution) should be brought," she said.

Jayalalithaa said action can be taken against the Sri Lankan government only if a strong resolution was passed at the UNHRC against Sri Lanka.

According to her, Karunanidhi didn't act in 2009 when he was in power in Tamil Nadu and the DMK was part of the central government when the war was at its peak in Sri Lanka.

She said Karunanidhi did not withdraw support to the central government or pulled out then.

Ecohing her, CPI-M leader T.K. Rangarajan told IANS: "After enjoying power at the centre for two terms, the DMK chief has announced withdrawal of support to show himself as the hero of Tamils."

Rangarajan said Karunanidhi's agenda was to face the next Lok Sabha polls.
