Modi`s past actions cannot be forgotten: Karuna

DMK chief M Karunanidhi on Sunday took a swipe at Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi`s three-day fast.



Chennai: DMK chief M Karunanidhi on Sunday took
a swipe at Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi`s three-day
fast, saying while he agreed with the BJP leader`s stand on
communal harmony his "past actions" cannot be forgotten.

"I agree with Modi`s stand on communal harmony. At the
same time, Modi`s actions in the past cannot be forgotten," he
said here in a statement in an apparent reference to the
charge that Modi did not take appropriate action to control
the 2002 Gujarat riots.

Modi has been on a fast since yesterday for peace and
communal harmony in Gujarat.

Karunanidhi`s comments come two days after his arch-rival
and Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalithaa extended her
support to Modi`s fast and deputed two AIADMK leaders to
felicitate him.

Explaining his recent remarks about "political
intention," behind the "delay" in the 2G investigations, in
which his daughter Kanimozhi and former telecom minister A
Raja have been arrested, the DMK chief said, "The doubts are
not whether they are against the DMK. But, I was referring to
the court not willing to grant even bail."

He also said a CBI inquiry should be ordered into the
Paramakudi firing incident, in which seven persons were
killed, if all the parties supported the move.
