She asked her party cadre to be patient and not to be a party to any violence. `The BJP government at the Centre, of which DMK is a partner, might use the law and order problem as a reason for dismissing the AIADMK government. DMK president M Karunandihi is waiting like an eagle to use any opportunity to seek the dismissal of the AIADMK government. Do not give any room for this`, she said appealing to her partymen to maintain calm.
