Karunanidhi: Did Jayalalithaa resign in 2004?

Special Correspondent

CHENNAI: Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam president and Chief Minister M. Karunanidhi on Tuesday asked whether All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam general secretary Jayalalithaa resigned the post of Chief Minister in 2004 when the Comptroller and Auditor General made adverse references about the AIADMK regime.

Reacting to Ms. Jayalalithaa's statement issued on Monday regarding the 2G spectrum allocation issue, the DMK leader recalled reports published in sections of the media on the press conference of the then Accountant General (audit) for Tamil Nadu T. Teethan and the CAG's criticism of the State Home Department for lapses in the purchase of tents.

“Unprecedented”

Terming Ms. Jayalalithaa's reply of 2004 “unprecedented,” Mr. Karunanidhi said “not even in a statement format, a full page advertisement of condemnation was issued on behalf of the Tamil Nadu government.”

An amount of around Rs.1.23 crore was spent for the advertisement in dailies based in Tamil Nadu and northern States.

As for the loss caused to the exchequer on the spectrum allotment, the Chief Minister said the CAG report had stated that the loss of Rs.1.76 lakh crore was based only on presumption.

“Is it fair to attempt to write the final judgment based on ‘presumptive opinion'?” he wondered.
