Chennai: Taking her battle over 2G spectrum allocation to the home turf of former Union telecom
minister A Raja, AIADMK chief Jayalalithaa Sunday announced
that her party would stage a hunger strike at his native
Perambalur district.

"Raja has committed a scam of unprecedented
proportions. DMK president M Karunanidhi is also backing him.
The AIADMK will stage a hunger strike at Perambalur (Raja`s
native district) on December 27 against this," she said in a
statement here.

The Opposition leader also charged Raja with being
involved in a land scam in the district.

Her party would demand for the retrieval of these
lands besides pressing for implementing various welfare
projects, she said.

Raja had represented the constituency during the
previous Lok Sabha term, before switching over to Nilgiris in
2009.
