DMK will not be vindictive against Jaya: Karunanidhi

Written by: Staff

Chennai, May 6 (UNI) The DMK will not act vindictively against AIADMK supremo J Jayalalithaa if it is voted to power, Party President M Karunanidhi declared today.

Winding up his nearly three-week long hectic campaign in his Chepauk constituency, from where he is seeking a record 11th entry into the Assembly, Mr Karunanidhi said the DMK, if voted to power, would not be a vindictive government.

In his nearly 30-minute long speech during which he recalled the various vindictive measures of the five-year AIADMK rule, Mr Karunanidhi said his government would stand by justice and he would abide by the rule of law.

''Naangal Vanthal Sattathin Aatchithaan Nadaiperum...Engal Ittathin Aatchi Irukkathu Jayalalithaa Aatchi Pol'' (Our's will be a government that will be governed by the rule of law and not a whimsical government like Jayalalthaa's),'' he said.

Ms Jayalalithaa need not be afraid that if the DMK was voted back to power, it would be vindictive against her.

Highlighting the various 'harsh' measures of the AIADMK rule, Mr Karunandihi said Jayalalithaa had started her regime on an ''autocratic'' note by arresting him at midnight, and enmasse dismissing 1.70 lakh government employees at one stroke.

He also charged Ms Jayalalithaa of showing scant respect for judiciary following which the disproportionate case against her was transferred to Bangalore and the Dharmpauri bus burning case, in which three girls of Tamil Nadu Agricultural University were killed, shifted to Salem.

Recalling the strictures passed by the judiciairy in corruption cases against her, he refuted claims that Ms Jayalalithaa had realised her mistakes and corrected herself after the rout in 2004 Lok Sabha polls.
