New Delhi: Ahead of her appearance before a
CBI court in connection with the 2G spectrum scam, DMK MP
Kanimozhi on Thursday said that she would fight the case legally and
come out of it clean.
"It is a very, very serious charge and that I am very
clear and I am very sure that we will come out of it and
I will come out of it clean," she told TV channels when asked
about the CBI court summons to her to appear before it
tomorrow. She has been named in the second charge sheet filed
by the CBI in the 2G case.

43-year-old Kanimozhi, daughter of DMK chief M
Karunanidhi, said, "We will fight it legally and there is
nothing to say that I am a co-conspirator and we will face it

The Rajya Sabha MP, who has also been asked by the
Enforcement Directorate to appear before it in connection with
the 2G case under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act, said
she believed in the legal system of the country and that she
will abide by it.

"Whatever the court decides, I will accept," she said.
In its supplementary charge sheet filed in a special
court on April 25, the CBI had accused Kanimozhi of entering
into a criminal conspiracy with former telecom minister A Raja
for allegedly accepting illegal gratification through
Kalaignar TV -- a channel run by the ruling DMK in Tamil Nadu,
in which the money related to the 2G scam was routed.

Dismissing any difference in the DMK first family on the
issue, she said, "My family is not divided on this issue. My
family stands with the party`s decision. My family stands
together along with whatever decisions the leader and the
party have made. I think this is another perception which some
people in the press are trying to create."

Replying to a question on the future of Congress-DMK
ties, she said it was not for her to say or make any decision
on this issue.
