Chennai: Dubbing as political vendetta Chief
Minister Jayalalithaa`s announcement to convert Anna Centenary
Library building into a hospital, DMK president M Karunanidhi
on Thursday said her government was destroying all symbols of Tamil
culture.

"In the six months (that Jayalalithaa has been in power)
she has been holding closing down ceremonies to uniform
education, new assembly Secretariat complex, merger of
suburban commissionerate and merger of Anna universities, all
initiated by the DMK government," he said in a statement here.

He alleged that Jayalalithaa`s latest announcement on
converting his pet project into a super-speciality paediatric
hospital was driven by vendetta "which shows her rage (against
DMK)."

"Anna (DMK Founder CN Annadurai) said one needs a heart
that can absorb anything. But could his heart have withstood
this," he asked.
