AIADMK stifling democracy in Assembly: Karuna
Chennai: Accusing the ruling AIADMK of
stifling democracy in the state Assembly, DMK chief M
Karunanidhi on Thursday said none would be able to finish off the
the party as it had withstood many a challenge in the past.
"What more challenge could the DMK face than it had
during the Emergency. Even late Prime Minister Indira Gandhi
could not finish off the party. Later, Gandhi herself at a
public meeting here expressed regret for the excesses," he
said at a marriage function.
Recalling DMK founder CN Annadurai`s words on "democracy
blooming in the state Assembly", Karunanidhi said, "one has to
search for democracy in the Assembly today".
That was the reason why DMK members walked out of the
Assembly yesterday, he said, adding when his party was in
power it had respected the Opposition.
Ridiculing a state minister for narrating the story of a
greedy farmer and targeting his sons MK Stalin and MK
Alagiri, Karunanidhi, without taking the name of Chief
Minister J Jayalalithaa, said it was those who had accumulated
wealth and faced court cases in Bangalore who were greedy.
