Salem (TN), April 8: In a veiled hint at supporting a Congress-led government, DMK chief M Karunanidhi on Monday said his party will extend a hand to those who are against communalism and support minority communities.

Karunanidhi: DMK will welcome whoever gives a hand to support minorities

The apex court stayed for three weeks the day-to-day trial in the 18-year-old Rs 66.65-crore disproportionate assets case against Jayalalithaa by allowing the plea of the Special Public Prosecutor (SPP) who has to undergo medical treatment.

"The case has been adjourned a hundred times," he alleged. Karunanidhi also alleged law and order in the state were in shambles.

Appealing to the people to vote for the DMK-led front, the DMK chief introduced the front's candidates at Salem, Namakkal, Dharmapuri and Kallakurichi.
