Chennai: Reiterating that his partymen were
being jailed under false land grab cases, DMK chief M
Karunanidhi on Thursday expressed fears that the issue could be used
as a tool against political parties and could prove handy for
"By saying so, one does not mean that complaints
regarding land grab should be ignored. Proper scrutiny should
be done and a particular political party should not be
targeted. The police department should be allowed to take
action in accordance with law," he said writing in party
Holding that the AIADMK was "desperate to wreak
vengeance" on his partymen with the help of police and
foisting land grab cases for this purpose, Karunanidhi said
this "dream of the rulers" would not come true.
"Instead of focussing their energy on something which
will not happen (destroying DMK), it would be better for the
rulers to focus on basic issues of the states. The AIADMK and
the police should not create precedences," he said.
Karunanidhi claimed most of his partymen, including
former Minister Veerapandi S Arumugam, Chepauk MLA J
Anbazhagan and others, had been arrested under false cases.
