Karunanidhi telling close relations with Indira Gandhi never attended her death ceremony.
MDMK leader Vaiko on Saturday 1-1-2011 lashed out at Prime Minister Manmohan Singh for his alleged “compliance” in the irregularities in allocation of 2G spectrum and the Congress for being “equally culpable”.
“Our aim is to defeat the corrupt Congress-DMK combine in Tamil Nadu,” he said, clearly in contradiction of the stand taken by Jayalalithaa who has been quietly waiting and watching Congress moves and refraining from blistering attacks against the party.
Refusing to be drawn on queries about Jayalalithaa keeping her options open for the April assembly election, Vaiko insisted that the AIADMK leader’s open offer of support to the Congress was only “a political strategy” to create confusion within the DMK-led alliance.
“There is nothing more to her offer,” Vaiko told reporters in the city.
“The DMK will not come to power and the Congress-led government too will topple by the year-end,” he said, pointing out that rebel leader Jaganmohan Reddy in Andhra Pradesh, Trinamool Congress leader Mamata Banerjee, Samajwadi Party leader Mulayam Singh Yadav and NCP chief Sharad Pawar were all proving an headache for the Congress.
Vaiko told that Karunanidhi who is telling that he has having close relations with Indira Gandhi never attended her death ceremony. When I requested him to attend the ceremony, he got angry.
Refusing to take queries on alliances and reports of AIADMK trying to finalise a tie-up with DMDK, Vaiko quipped, “I respect DMDK and PMK. But the issue of alliances would be decided by the AIADMK leader.”
Now the opposition parties as a whole are standing for the probe of JPC committee in the irregularities in allocation of 2G spectrum. At this time if Congress party comes forward to arrest the spectrum culprits immediately, it may earn a memorable name from the people to the congress party.
