Karunanidhi hits back at Jayalalithaa: Reacting to the jibes of chief minister J Jayalalithaa in the state Assembly on Thursday, Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) president M Karunanidhi has said rules and custom are not being followed by the AIADMK government.
In a statement, he said Jayalalithaa is trampling democracy under her feet.
Taking on Karunanidhi, Jayalalithaa on Thursday asked him to come to the Assembly to answer her queries on his contradictory statements over the ceding of Katchatheevu island to Sri Lanka and not issue statements from outside.
“To give a reply here, there is a confusion on who their leader is, who is their chief? Is it Karunanidhi, who is referred to as party president or is it the leader of Opposition (Stalin), who is sitting here?” she said.
