Jayalalitha slamps karunanidhi


All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK) chief Jayalalitha today issued a legal notice to Chief Minister Karunanidhi, after the later held the AIADMK and the Marumalarchi Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (MDMK) responsible for brutal violence at the Chennai College.

On Monday, Jayalalitha had threatened to file a defamation suit against Chief Minister Karunanidhi after the ruling Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) accused her party of instigating the violence. Jayalalithaa has accused Karunanidhi of indulging in mud-slinging and said he was unfit to work in the post of a Chief Minister.

“A judicial inquiry has been ordered into the November 12 incident. So will Karunanidhi’s comments not influence the Inquiry Commission to give a report, which reflected his opinion?” she said in a statement on Monday.

Jayalalitha has clearly said that if Karunanidhi does not apologise through the media within twenty-four hours of this notice, she will sue him for damages.

Earlier on Sunday, Karunanidhi had accused the AIADMK of instigating the campus brutality at Chennai’s Ambedkar law college.

“It appears as if the opposition has incited the students to indulge in violence so as to seek my resignation. Had the police entered the campus, the headlines in the papers would have been different against police,” Chief Minister Karunanidhi said.

However, Karunanidhi had later clarified that he had made that comment in jest.
