AIADMK stages demos in TN demanding dismissal of DMK govt

via published on September 26, 2007

CHENNAI: The opposition AIADMK, led by its supremo Jayalalithaa, on Wednesday staged a statewide demonstration, protesting against Chief Minister M Karunanidhi’s remarks against lord Ram and sought the dismissal of the DMK government for having “violated the constitution by hurting the sentiments of Hindus.”

Jayalalithaa, who had been camping at her Kodanadu Estate in Nilgiris district for the past one week, led the demonstration at Udhagamandalam.

Talking to reporters there, she alleged that Karunanidhi, forgetting his constitutional responsibility, was making “derogatory” remarks against lord Ram, revered by crores of Hindus across the world.

The Centre should dismiss the DMK government and remove DMK ministers from the Union Cabinet, she urged.

Jayalalithaa dubbed as “anti-constitutional and anti-people” the bandh call given by the ruling DMK and its allies on October one to press for speedy implementation of the Sethusamudram project. “My party will move the high Court against the bandh,” she added.

Making it clear that the AIADMK was not against the implementation of the Sethusamudram project, she said the DMK had launched a misinformation campaign that her party was working against the project.

“No comments and the question is not necessary now,” she said when a query was raised about the third front.
