Chennai: DMK patriarch M Karunanidhi on Monday appeared before a local court here in connection with the defamation case filed against him by the Tamil Nadu government.
The case was adjourned for March 10 after Karunanidhi`s presence was recorded.
Speaking to reporters later, Karunanidhi said the government files defamation cases against everybody who says or writes anything about it.
"What was defaming is not known to them (to the government) nor to us. Only the government should say what it is that it found defaming," he said.
The government had filed a defamation case against Karunanidhi for issuing an article published by a Tamil weekly as a statement.
Karunanidhi decided to appear in person in the court.
He told reporters that justice will always win and people should unite together.
