Chennai, Oct 17: Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M Karunanidhi today remained unruffled over AIADMK leader J Jayalalithaa's charge that she faced threat to her life in the wake of some remarks made by top DMK leaders.

Mr Karunanidhi refused to be drawn into the controversy, when asked about Ms Jayalalithaa's remarks that she faced threat to her life from him and his son and Local Administration Minister M K Stalin.

''Let her go to the court. We will tell the truth before the court'', the DMK leader said replying to a question on the AIADMK leader's remarks that she would move the High Court over the scaling down of security by the DMK government.

Mr Karunanidhi, in a brief chat with newspersons after chairing a Legislature party meeting, disputed Ms Jayalalithaa's claim that the Centre had dropped the Sethusamudram Shipping Channel Project (SSCP) and both the Axis Bank and World Bank had backed out from funding the project.

Asked whether he had received any information in this regard in his capacity as the Chief Minister, Mr Karunanidhi, replying in the negative, said ''the project is not dropped.''
