Erode: AIADMK supremo J Jayalalithaa on Thursday lambasted DMK for fielding former Union ministers A Raja and Dayanidhi Maran, accused in 2G and Aircel-Maxis cases respectively.
Addressing an election rally here, Jayalalithaa said while Raja was facing corruption charges in the 2G case, Maran was an accused in Aircel-Maxis, besides illegally procuring 300 telephone connections at his residence.

Taking a dig at the defence offered by DMK chief M Karunanidhi that cases against the leaders were "weak", the Tamil Nadu Chief Minister asked, "What does it mean if there is no witness? Karunanidhi thinks that he can justify scam-tainted candidates contest and cheat the people."

Jayalalithaa, who has been criss-crossing the state to ensure her party`s victory in 39 seats in Tamil Nadu, appealed to the electorate to teach a lesson to the DMK for giving tickets to tainted leaders.

She also appealed the voters to ensure AIADMK`s victory for an inclusive government at the Centre and criticised policies of the Congress-led UPA government.
