Chennai, Nov 24 (UNI) Tamil Nadu Chief Minister and DMK President M Karunanidhi today hit out at the Left parties for their moves to forge alliance with the All India Anna DMK (AIADMK) for the coming Lok Sabha elections.
The DMK chief criticised the Left parties, for desperately trying to join hands with Ms Jayalalithaa, who never honoured the alliance parties.
The Left parties, which had no differences with the DMK, were leaving the front to renew ties with the AIADMK, just because the DMK continued its relations with the Congress, he said.
Likening the Left parties' move to passengers hurrying up to catch a train, Mr Karunanidhi said their move ''is an election travel without a policy and vision''.
The Left parties were showing great urgency, without even knowing when the Lok Sabha elections would be, Mr Karunanidhi said, adding ''their urgency can be clearly seen as they had not taken veteran Communist Party of India(CPI) leader R Nallakannu into confidence, when they went to meet Ms Jayalalithaa for talks''.
Referring to CPI General Secretary A B Bardhan's claim that they went to meet Ms Jayalalithaa on her invitation, Mr Karunanidhi said the AIADMK leader had extended the invitation to show that she was active and ensure that her rank and file do not move away from the party.
''She is trying to enact a drama that political parties are keen on forging alliance with her party and some parties are falling prey to this'', the DMK leader said.
On CPI party organ carrying a cartoon, criticising the state police, Mr Karunanidhi said this was also part of the strategy to ''catch the train''. The Left parties were desperate to bring smiles on the face of Ms Jayalalithaa, he added.
Mr Karunanidhi thanked all those, who had hailed the State Govenment's decision to provide three per cent exclusive reservation to Arunthadiyars, a sub-caste in the scheduled caste.
