Chennai: Coming down heavily on the Election Commission once again, Tamil Nadu Chief Minister and DMK president M Karunanidhi on Saturday wondered whether it was he or the poll panel that was ruling the state.
Addressing an election rally in Vellore, around 125 km from here, he said: "Is it me who is ruling the state or the Election Commission? I do not have any complaint if everything is done as per law."
He said: "I don`t want to comment or fight the Election Commission. If the Election Commission functions impartially nobody would complain about it."
Obliquely referring to Brahmins he said those who wear the `poonool` (sacred thread) are bent upon ensuring that the DMK does not came back again to power in the state.
Referring the welfare measures initiated by his government, he said during the previous AIADMK rule government officials were dismissed and arrested. Around 12,000 road workers were dismissed.
"I was arrested midnight by the police barging into my bedroom," he said.
Karunanidhi said even if the DMK does not come back to power he and his party would continue to work for the welfare of the people.
