PMK leader Anbumani Ramadoss today dismissed as baseless charges that he had circulated CDs for allegedly trying to incite people on caste lines and termed the case against him as false.

He alleged that he was framed by police at the instigation of ruling AIADMK due to their "fear of failure" in Dharmapuri, from where he is contesting the April 24 Lok Sabha polls.

A day after he was booked for allegedly attempting to incite people on caste line, Anbumani, in a statement claimed that his chances of winning were bright and unable to digest this, the ruling party had instigated the police who had subsequently filed a case against him.

"I am not aware of any CDs that are said to have been circulated by me; neither have I seen them nor have I distributed them. This is a false case. There is no need for me to incite caste feelings when I have the support of all sections of people," he said.

It was AIADMK which was trying to gain political mileage by creating caste feelings, he charged.

He apprehended that the ruling party could create similar issues with 25 days left for polling and sought Election Commission to intervene in the matter and take action against police officials who had "foisted" a case against PMK workers.

A case under IPC sections related to offences, including promoting enmity between different groups and issuing statement conducing to public mischief and violating Model Code of Conduct, was registered against Anbumani, PMK Deputy General Secretary A Saravanan and District Secretary R Arasangam yesterday.
