Jaya misusing Central funds for poll: Cong
Chennai, Apr 14 (UNI) Rajya Sabha Member and AICC Secretary-in-charge of Tamil Nadu Shantaram Naik today alleged misuse of Central funds by AIADMK Supremo and Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa for election purposes.
Talking to UNI here today, Mr Naik, who was here to distribute Forms A and B to party candidates contesting the May eight Assembly polls, claimed Ms Jayalalithaa had been diverting the funds given by the Centre for tsunami and flood relief, for elections.
''She is distributing the funds to woo the voters. Without giving credit to the Congress-led UPA Government at the Centre for providing funds during tsunami and floods, she is distributing them to the people as if it is her money,'' he alleged and criticised her for repeated attacks on the Centre for failing to release funds.
Mr Naik said the DMK-led DPA would win the elections with a thumping majority.
''There is absolutely no chance for the AIADMK to come to power again.'' he claimed.
During the first four years of her rule, Ms Jayalalithaa committed several atrocities against the people of Tamil Nadu by her various actions, he alleged.
She was trying to improve her image since last year by undoing decisions taken earlier.People had started thinking and will keep these things in the mind, he said.
Mr Naik said Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and AICC President Sonia Gandhi will canvass votes for the DPA in Tamil Nadu and their campaign dates would be finalised soon. ''Definitely they are coming,'' he added.
The process of distributing the forms to the candidates started yesterday. Several candidates, including those from far away places, had already received the forms and the process will be completed today, Mr Naik said.
