Jaya attacks DMK over 2G scam accused

AIADMK supremo and Tamil Nadu chief minister Jayalalitha on Thursday attacked the opposition DMK for fielding two of the 2G scam tainted former ministers, A Raja and Dayanidhi Maran, in the forthcoming Lok Sabha elections.

Addressing an election rally in Erode district in Tamil Nadu, Jayalalitha said at a time when tainted leaders are expected to stay away from elections, the Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) has fielded two of them in the April 24 polls.

Targeting Maran, she said he faces the charge of misusing his official position to force the sale of Aircel to Malaysian company Maxis. Following that, a group company of Maxis invested Rs 600 crore in the Sun TV network group company.
