Chief Minister and AIADMK supremo J Jayalalithaa on Sunday lashed out at DMK leader M K Stalin for alleging that she had sent kar sevaks for the Babri Masjid demolition and said it was the DMK that had benefited from its association with the BJP when it was part of the NDA alliance in 2004-2009.

Addressing a rally to introduce party candidate S Rajendiran for the Lok Sabha polls, she attacked the UPA government for its failed economic policies, which affected the poor and raised prices of essential commodities.

She said the upcoming election is a democratic war against the Congress-led government in the Centre and its former supporter DMK, adding that the UPA government should be thrown out.

“The corrupt Central government was involved in many scams and the 2G scam was top among them. The DMK was instrumental in causing the 2G scam and huge public money was siphoned off by some persons,” Jayalalithaa charged.

She also said, “To get minority votes, Karunanidhi and Stalin keep complaining that I had sent kar sevaks for the demolition of Babri Masjid, but it’s not true. The fact is that the DMK only benefited by being part of the BJP government, when they were allies in 2004-2009.”

She further said, “Karunanidhi used the situation and developed his own family, when DMK was part of the Central government. During DMK’s alliance with the Congress, he never opposed any of the decisions such as authorising private oil companies to fix fuel prices. But now in the DMK manifesto they have said they will demand withdrawal of this power.”

Later, she listed welfare measures and infrastructure projects implemented by her government in Villupuram during its 33-month rule.
