Thiruvananthapuram: Continuing her attack on
ruling DMK in Tamil Nadu on 2G spectrum scam, AIADMK General
Secretary Jayalalithaa on Thursday said that save Raja campaign of
DMK would be counter productive.

The campaign to save A Raja, former Union Telecom Minister
would boomerang`, Jayalalithaa told reporters at the Aiport on
her way to Kanayakumari.
Stating that the CBI investigation into the case was
progressing on right direction, she said `Iam sure that it
will reach a logical conclusion`.

Terming the 2G specturam scam as one of the biggest in
the world itself, she said the image of DMK already dented
had been demolished with this scam.

To a question of her party`s suportt to UPA government, she
said `I had already made my position clear on the matter`. Now
it was upto how developemnt takes place, she said.

Jayalalithaa said DMK government tried very hard in the
last five years to pin her down. But, they could not find any
wrong doing on my part as Chief Minister and also not able to
foist any case on me.

On the Mullaperiayar dam issue, she said there was no
justitication for Kerala government plan to construct a new
dam to replace the century-old Mullaperiayr reservoir.

Jayalalithaa said the new dam would only result in depriving
water to five distrits of Tamil Nadu affecting even the food
security of the country.

She said the proposed new dam was only 400 meters downstrem
of the existing structure and so, the contnetion of earth
quake would not hold.
Jayallalithaa said the only thing that would happen with
the new dam was the cancellation of the 999 years lease
agreement entered into between two states in 1886.

Yesterday in a statment she had appealed to the Kerala
government to reconsider the proposed construction of a new
dam to replace the century-old Mullaperiyar reservoir saying
it would affect five fertile districts of Tamil Nadu.
