Karunanidhi's claim on law and order ridiculous: Jayalalithaa

Special Correspondent



Jayalalithaa

CHENNAI: AIADMK general secretary Jayalalithaa on Saturday described as “ridiculous,” Chief Minister M. Karunanidhi's claim that law and order situation in the State was satisfactory.

“It is a veiled threat to the media that has been exposing the excesses of the ruling party. It is in attempt to deprive the media of its freedom,” she said in a statement.

Recalling Mr. Karunanidhi's argument that law and order situation in Tamil Nadu was better when compared to other states, Ms. Jayalalithaa said he was hinting that before the end of the term of the DMK regime, it would deteriorate to such a level that could be compared with countries such as Afghanistan, Pakistan, Nepal and Sri Lanka.

“The Chief Minister's claim is laughable because law and order situation is so bad that parents are accompanying their children to school,” she said and recalled the killing of two schoolchildren in Coimbatore, kidnapping of a student in Chennai and the killing of former Minister Venkatachalam at Alangudi.

Ms. Jayalalithaa said people of the State had come to a conclusion that law and order had plunged to all-time low after Mr. Karunanidhi rehabilitated former Minister N.K.K.P. Raja, who was involved in kidnapping.

She said that it was an unjustifiable expectation of the Chief Minister that the media should write positively about the law and order situation when Agriculture Minister Veerapandi Arumugam was calling on an accused in a murder case, Labour Minister T.M. Anbarasan was threatening communists and DMK MLAs were intimidating police officers.
