DMK rubbishes Swamy's allegation against Karunanidhi

"There is no violation. We have followed all the norms," DMK spokesman TKS Elangovan said.

His comments came against the backdrop of Swamy seeking the Governor's sanction for prosecution of Karunanidhi.

Elangovan said plots have been allotted on the basis of declaration by individuals. "The government is not going to verify the declaration submitted by every applicant - whether he or she owns a plot or not. It is not the government's job," he said.

The DMK leader accused the opposition parties of acting out of desperation as they could not come to power.

"They (opposition parties) take to all sorts of gimmicks to see that people change their minds and do not support the DMK (during the coming Assembly elections)," he said.
"It don't think there is any basis. It only shows their desperation," he added.

Swamy sought Governor Surjit Singh Barnala's sanction a day after the DMK chief issued him a legal notice for linking his name to the 2G spectrum allocation scam.

He said Karunanidhi has violated every rule and allotted land to a favoured few and claimed that he had enough evidence to prove the names of the beneficiaries.
