Tamil Nadu Assembly Polls: Jayalalithaa hits out at Karunanidhi


Coimbatore, May 2: Branding the DMK-Congress tie up for May 16 elections as a corrupt alliance, AIADMK leader and Chief Minister Jayalalithaa who alleged that no election promise was fulfilled by DMK unless it benefitted Karunanidhi.

Citing the distribution of free colour televisions worth Rs 2,000 to everyone, she said that he charged Rs 3000 for cable connections run by its family members, thus earning them a profit of Rs 25,000 crore in five years.


The unfulfilled promises made by DMK included providing solar energy in remote villages, elections in cooperative societies, setting up a food processing export centre and a memorial for late actor Shivaji Ganesan.

She ridiculed both the parties, saying that they were partners in crime and were equally corrupt. Promising to promote tourism and infrastructure, Jayalalithaa said that if the party won, she would promote Munnar. She would also ensure that all the tea estate workers in Devikulam are protected under social security scheme.
