CHENNAI: The deputy speaker of the Tamil Nadu Assembly ‘Pollachi’ V Jayaraman on Friday attacked the Opposition DMK in the House by pointing out some of the many violent incidents during the previous regimes of the party.

Participating in a debate on the demand for grants to Home, Prohibition and Excise department, he countered the DMK with his barbs and satire. He questioned the failure of the earlier DMK Government in going for an appeal against the acquittal of all the accused in the brutal murder of former minister Tha. Kiruttinan.

However, the deputy leader of opposition Durai Murugan said appeals could be made only on ‘fit’ cases and not on all cases.

Jayaraman, who represents the Pollachi segment, recalled how the cops, under the DMK regime, remained mute spectators when a group of students assaulted fellow students at Ambedkar Law College, Chennai.
Launching a scathing attack on the main Opposition, he also criticised the DMK for the violence unleashed against lawyers in Madras High Court. A court building was torched and a judge was hurt in the attack, he said.

This apart, lawyers were thrashed in the presence of the Chief Justice of India during a function marking the unveiling of a statue in the High Court premises.

Jayaraman also recalled that Coimbatore, usually a place known for peace and tranquility, was turned into a land of bombs in 1998 and he said bombs were found even beside a dais where the BJP leader LK Advani was to speak. A policeman was also killed in violence, he added.

In sharp contrast to such incidents that occurred over the years during the DMK regimes, Tamil Nadu has been peaceful under the AIADMK rule, he claimed.
