Undue delay in wealth case: Karunanidhi

By Our Special Correspondent

CHENNAI, JUNE 28. The DMK president, M. Karunanidhi, today said that he hoped that the hearing in the wealth case against the Chief Minister, Jayalalithaa, would not end up as a case of delayed justice.

Drawing a parallel, Mr. Karunanidhi said that when the Supreme Court ordered the shifting of a case against the Gujarat Chief Minister, Narendra Modi, to Maharashtra, the trial began in 70 days. In the case against Ms. Jayalalithaa, the Supreme Court directive shifting the case to Karnataka was given on November 18, 2003. Even after 223 days, the trial had not begun in Karnataka. Even a decision on how to send records had not been taken, Mr. Karunanidhi said.

On the confusion in professional course admissions, he said it was proof of how far Tamil Nadu had progressed to become the number one State in education. Also, the decision to do away with examinations up to class five, scarcity of textbooks, the three-fold rise in textbook prices and the transfer of headmasters for low pass percentage in class X examinations were examples of the progress made in education, he noted sarcastically.

Mr. Karunanidhi asked when entrance examinations for the management quota would be held and when the students would be admitted to engineering courses. He said there were three entrance examinations now — one conducted by Anna University, another by private college managements and the third at the national level. In the examination conducted by the university, there were problems in about 20 per cent of the questions. He wondered whether anyone in the State government was bothered about any of these problems.
