M Karunanidhi
New Delhi, Jun 3: He may may have turned 88 on Jun 3, but there is no stopping to the sharp rhetoric of former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister and DMK patriarch, M Karunanidhi. Known as one of the finest writers in Tamil language, Kalaignar as he is fondly called, minced no words to warn the Congress part about its misadventure in trying to upset the eight-year old alliance with DMK.

He is reported to be planning to fly out to Delhi on Jun 3 to meet his daughter Kanimozhi, who is behind the bars for her alleged involvement in the 2G spectrum scandal.

Hinting at a relook over the alliance with congress, he said, "Cadres who have dedicated themselves to social and political renaissance should keep going without forgetting that bad friendship would end in trouble."

Reports suggest that the octogenarian leader, is mighty upset with the Congress party for not trying to defend his family members from the CBI interrogation over their alleged involvement in the 2G spectrum scandal.

Kanimozhi, Karunanidhi's daughter has been in the Tihar jail for almost two weeks now without a sign of getting bail anytime soon. With his grand nephew Dayanidhi Maran too coming under the spotlight for his alleged excesses during his tenure as the Union Telecom Minister, and the axis of enquiry still pointing at his wives shares in the family-owned TV channels, Karunanidhi is surely under the pump from political opponents and friends alike.

And adding that to the humiliating loss it suffered in the hands of AIADMK in the recently concluded Tamil Nadu assembly polls, Congress is now almost certain to wash its hands off the 2g enquiry process. It can only mean that if guilty the DMK leader's family and party members can't find a way out due to the lack of any coalition compulsion on Congress.
