Jayalalithaa DA case: AIADMK dubs Karnataka's decision to appeal as "shameful"


Chennai, Jun 2: Dubbing the Karnataka government's decision to appeal in the Supreme Court against the verdict acquitting Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalithaa in an assets case as "shameful," the ruling AIADMK on Tuesday asserted that its supremo will again prove her innocence.

"That a State government is going to appeal in an 18-year old case after the High Court had given its judgement following the completion of final arguments is a shameful act," AIADMK Tamil daily "Dr Namadhu MGR," said today in an front paged article.


After a Cabinet meeting, Karnataka government announced yesterday that it would appeal in the Supreme Court against the verdict exonerating Jayalalithaa.

"People of Tamil Nadu have no doubt that our Puratchi Thalaivi Amma will shine like gold refined in fire again by proving that she is innocent (in court of law) after stamping out conspiracies," it said.

It termed the decision to appeal by Karnataka government as "a happening which has not occurred so far (in judicial history where cases were transferred to another State)."

Karnataka's move "smacked of political vendetta after listening to the voice of some (persons)," the daily said.

The write up also took a swipe at the DMK and PMK for demanding appeal in the case that absolved Jayalalithaa.

Stating that "evil forces," had repeatedly been urging Karnataka to go in for appeal, the AIADMK said such "lowlifes'" wishful thought was to try making a comeback as they were unable to take on their chief in a straight political contest.

AIADMK has often monikered DMK as "evil forces" during its criticism of that party.

Apparently hitting out at PMK without naming it, AIADMK said,"those who did not seek out Karnataka on Cauvery, the lifeline issue of Tamil Nadu people, strolled the streets of Bengaluru seeking an appeal in the case."

A PMK delegation last month called on Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah and gave a memorandum urging the state government to appeal in the case.
