DMK Treasurer M K Stalin
Coimbatore, Aug 5: DMK Treasurer M K Stalin today (Aug 5) alleged the AIADMK Government was dreaming of finishing off his party by foisting false land grabbing cases against its leaders and asserted it would come out clean facing the challenge legally.

The government was dreaming that the DMK could be finished off by foisting false cases against its former minsiters, senior leaders and district secretaries which would not bear fruit, Stalin, son of DMK President M Karunanidhi, told reporters here.

He was speaking after meeting former ministers Veerapandi Arumugam and N K K P Raja and DMK MLA J Anbalagan and some other party workers lodged in the central prison here since their arrests in land grabbing cases.

Stalin's elder brother and Union Minister M K Alagiri had met Arumugam, DMK's strongman in Salem region, soon after he was grilled by police during the three-day custodial interrogation before his arrest last month.

Describing the land grabbing cases as pre-planned and politically motivated to silence the leaders, he said DMK would face all the cases legally and come out clean.

He alleged police were not entertaining similar complaints against AIADMK ministers and leaders and instead were trying to convince the complainants against registering their complaints.

Several DMK leaders and functionaries have been arrested across the state in the past couple of months after the AIADMK Government launched a crackdown on land grabbings by setting up special police cells to deal with the cases.
