Chennai, Oct 17: Former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister and AIADMK supremo J Jayalalithaa on Wednesday said that she would approach court to seek more protection, a day after an intruder was found inside her Poes Garden residence. The intruder was seen approaching the leader"s room when an alarm was raised by Sasikala, leading to the youth"s detention. The youth claimed that he was trying to meet the leader for getting employment.
"It was due to God's grace that I escaped yesterday," Jayalalithaa today remarked at a press conference here, and questioned, “Will anyone seeking job come straight to the first floor of my house? How did the police personnel posted on security duty admitted him in?"
She termed the Tuesday"s incident as a 'sinister occurrence", and indirectly hinted to a conspiracy launched by her political rival, the ruling DMK.
“I (have) came to know that Chief Minister M Karunanidhi had recently advised his son and heir apparent M K Stalin to keep the present alliance intact till the next Assembly elections," she said.
Quoting her sources, Jayalalithaa claimed that Karunanidhi told his son, "If by any chance, you allow her (Jayalalithaa) to come back to power, you may have to suffer."
“To which Stalin replied that it is to happen only if she is alive at the time of next elections," Jayalalithaa added. Jayalalithaa was provided with 'Z' plus security by the previous NDA Government in view of perceived threat to her life from Tamil extremist groups.
