Addressing newspersons here, Mr Gowda opined that being a seasoned politician Mr Karunanidhi should not have gone to the extent of arresting his political foe Vaiko. "There are ministers both in Tamil Nadu and Government at the Centre who have issued more harsher and provocative statement against Sri Lanka's action against LTTE cadre than Vaiko and got away from any punitive actions" he said. The act of Tamil Nadu government on Vaiko is nothing but "peak of political vendetta" and Mr Karunanidhi being one of the few seasoned politician should not have stooped to such a low level, he added.
