Chennai, Oct 27: Jayalalitha, the AIADMK supremo on Sunday, Oct 26 said to the media that she fear that she might be arrested. In a statement released in Chennai, Jaya said that her apprehension was based on the reported instruction to police by Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M Karunanidhi. However she added that there was no prima facie evidence to arrest her.
"Stung by my demanding the arrest of Karunanidhi and the dismissal of his government for anti-national crimes for which MDMK leaders Vaiko and M Kannappan were arrested, the Chief Minister has exhorted reluctant police officials to immediately arrest me under some pretext or other. I have been informed about this by officials," said Jayalalithaa.
Jaya alleged that Karunanidhi's decision was to 'take revenge' on her as she demanded the Chief Minister's arrest for eulogising slain political chief SP Tamilselvam and political advisor Anton Balasingam.
"Informed sources had told me about the intention of the government," Jayalalithaa said.
