AIADMK State secretary A Anbazhagan on Monday said that the agitation by Congress on burning of effigies of Sonia Gandhi and Prime Minister Manmohan Singh was politically motivated.

Addressing a press conference, Anbazhagan said that even as police had identified and initiated action against those involved in the burning of effigies, Union Minister V Narayanasamy was holding protests with an eye on the forthcoming Lok Sabha elections.  

Anbazhagan said that the agitations by Congress workers across the Union Territory were destablising law and order situation, and added that Narayanasamy should shoulder responsibilities in case of problems originating out of such agitations.

Anbazhagan said that even as Union Minister G K Vasan was supporting a resolution adopted in the Tamil Nadu Assembly, against Sri Lanka, Narayanasamy was opposing it  and termed the act as ‘political selfishness’. He said that Narayanasamy had been repeatedly saying that the Centre had provided `2,000 crore to Sri Lanka. However, Anbazhagan said that the amount was utilised to modernise cremation grounds for Tamils. He said that Congress had “cheated” Tamils.

He said that Congress was raising Sonia issue in a vigorous manner but was not uttering a word against the “anti-people” AINRC government. He demanded that the Chief minister come clear on whether he had written to  the Prime Minister urging him to boycott the CHOGM at Colombo.

Anbazhagan charged the AINRC government with cheating people by not holding local body elections. He blamed the government for its failure in securing PG seats in private medical colleges.
