Karunanidhi using dalit card to defend Raja.

Karunanidhi using dalit card to defend Raja.
The CPM in Tamil Nadu on Monday 29-11-2010  criticised chief minister M Karunanidhi’s attempt to play the caste card to defend former communications minister A Raja, saying the people would not accept the claim that Raja was being targeted in the spectrum scam only because he was a dalit.
   
“The people won’t accept the use of caste identity to cover up the multi-crore rupee scandal,” CPM state secretary G Ramakrishnan told reporters at the party headquarters here. Raking up the Aryan-Dravidian divide, as Karunanidhi had done in a public meeting in Vellore was not acceptable, he added.
   
The DMK leader had two days ago sought to contrast the attitude of political parties towards the late T T Krishnamachari, a Brahmin, when he was forced to resign under a cloud in the wake of the Mundhra scandal in the 1950s, from their behaviour in the case of Raja. “The matter was dropped as soon as TTK resigned, but the opposition is not allowing the issue to die down even after Raja quit the ministry. Is it because Raja is a dalit?” the CM had asked.
   
Dalit Ezhilmalai former Union minister of India has also condemned Karunanidhis dalit card speech during his interview with “Jaya TV” telling that it is not proper to tell that Raja alone was a Dalit, and he has also narrated the story of Dalit Umasankar and others victimised by Karunanidhi.

A day after his suspension was revoked by the government, IAS officer C Umashankar accused Tamil Nadu chief minister M Karunanidhi of harassment by framing false charges against him for being honest in service.
In our opinion it is the usual habit of Kalaignar Karunanidhi to play caste card in pointing fingers against others to hide his own party members bribe episode. Particularly in former Chief Minister Jayalalitha’s case, she has already surrendered all the Tansi lands acquired by her to the Government, but Karunanidhi still insists her case to be probed. 
Kindly visit “You Tube” to hear the speeches of former Union Minister Dalit Ezhilmalai. Thanks to “Jaya TV.”
