Tiruchirapalli, July 10 (UNI) Pattali Makkal Katchi Founder-Leader S Ramadoss today said the DMK Government would not get 'pass mark' even if it completed its term in office.

Addressing the press here after visiting his Party Former MLA and Vanniyar Sangam President Kaduvetti Guru at the Central Prison here where he was lodged in connection with several cases, Dr Ramadoss said under the DMK Government, Tamil Nadu was flooded with liquor, education commercialisd and the state pushed into poverty.

To divert people's attention from its 'ineffectiveness,' the government announced several schemes like distribution of free colour television sets and gas stoves.

Dr Ramadoss described Guru's arrest as 'pure murder of democracy' and claimed the government was planning to detain him under Goondas Act also.

He warned if the DMK Government detained Mr Guru under the Goondas Act, the party's six Lok Sabha MP and a Rajaya Sabha MP will meet the Prime Minister and the Union Home Minister and make a representation and meet the matter legally.

He said the party was sent out of the DMK-led DPA since the PMK refused to praise Chief Minister M Karunandhi and when government's misdeeds were pointed out by the party, it was not liked by the circle close to the DMK chief.

The PMK Leader alleged Mr Karunanidhi had totally forgetten about the plight of the Tamils in Sri Lanka after he came to the power.

While there were no plans to meet either AICC President Sonia Gandhi or Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, PMK Parliamentary Party Leader Ramadoss would be attending the UPA's Coordination Committee Meeting scheduled for tomorrow.

He also pointed out there was no danger to the UPA Government due to Left's withdrawal of support and it will complete its full term.

To a question, he said the DMK and the AIADMK were forming the government since 1967 in the state. This trend should change with national parties like Congress forming government with like-minded parties.

The PMK was interested at forming alliance with parties other than DMK and the AIADMK for the ensuing Lok Sabha elections.
