DMK chief planning to intimidate voters, alleges Jaya

Written by: Staff

Chennai, May 6 (UNI) AIADMK General Secretary and Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa today alleged that DMK President M Karunanidhi had planned to intimidate voters by inciting violence on the polling day in order to win the election by 'hook or by crook.' Talking to reporters after winding up her 36-day-long gruelling election campaign at CIT Nagar here, she said the voters and party cadres should exercise their franchise without any fear.

Responding to a question on Mr Karunanidhi's reported speech at a campaign meeting that his party should win at any cost, she said the DMK chief was on the verge of frustration due to fear of defeat at the hustings and was planning to intimidate the electorate.

The AIADMK supremo also urged the partymen to be vigilant and prevent DMK men from casting bogus votes. They should keep a close watch until all electronic voting machines were sealed and despatched to counting centres, she stressed.

Stating that the state police was known for its impartiality, Ms Jayalalithaa said she had no doubts, whatsoever, that they would not give room for any violence and provide proper security.

On her party's poll prospects, she said the Democratic People's Alliance, headed by the AIADMK, had people's support and it would sweep to victory, winning a majority of 234 seats.
