Reiterating her charge that DMK president M Karunanidhi has been betraying Tamil Nadu on many vital issues, Chief Minister and AIADMK general secretary J Jayalalithaa on Wednesday exhorted party cadre to decimate the DMK in the coming Lok Sabha elections.
“Propelled by selfish motives, Karunanidhi has bid adieu to the very fundamental principles including State autonomy practised by Arignar Anna. Decades ago, Karunanidhi surrendered before the Congress to escape from the corruption cases related to the Sarkaria Commission. Now he has become a pawn in the hands of the ‘northern hegemony’, which has been acting against the interests of Tamil Nadu, just to escape from the 2G spectrum scam case,” Jayalalithaa charged in her letter to the AIADMK cadre on the occasion of the party’s 42nd foundation day (October 17).
“Let us vow to decimate the DMK headed by Karunanidhi, which has been betraying Tamil Nadu, in the 2014 LS elections and you should vigorously work towards that objective,” she said.
Karunanidhi, who snapped ties with the Congress over the Sri Lankan Tamils issue, started reviving ties with the Congress after it offered support to his daughter Kanimozhi in the Rajya Sabha elections.
After receiving overwhelming responses to all the schemes like Amma eateries, mineral water and many others undertaken by her as the Chief Minister, the popularity of the AIADMK reached the peak among the public. Unable to stomach this, Karunanidhi was reeling out canards against her government, she charged.
