AIADMK planning to move SC against Karunanidhi
Wednesday November 7 2007 00:00 IST
CHENNAI: Maintaining that Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M Karunanidhi could not continue in his post after "eulogising" outlawed LTTE's political wing leader P Tamilchelvan, AIADMK Chief Jayalalithaa on Tuesday said her party had no other option but to move the Supreme Court as the Centre had "not realised the seriousness of the issue."
"There can't be two different views that Karunanidhi's action of expressing condolence on behalf of the Tamil Nadu government is anti-constitutional and a treason. A person who openly supports a terrorist outfit, proscribed in the country, cannot continue in the post of Chief Minister," she said in a statement here.
On the DMK Chief's argument that MDMK Chief Vaiko, an ally of the AIADMK, had also condoled the death of the LTTE leader, Jayalalithaa said Vaiko had neither taken the oath of office, as per Indian Constitution, as Chief Minister nor was holding any official post.
As Karunanidhi was apprehensive that he might lose his government due to "anti-national" activities, he was attempting to divert the issue by invoking the name of "Tamil blood and Tamil spirit," she charged.
"Why did he not express condolence when his former cabinet colleague T Kiruttinan was murdered and when three employees of Tamil daily 'Dinakaran' were burnt alive in Madurai? Weren't they Tamils? Is LTTE leader Tamilchelvan alone a Tamil?" she asked.
"While I am raising the legal aspects of the issue, he is talking about Tamil spirit and blood. He is the one who supported forest brigand Veerappan who killed more than 200 Tamils," Jayalalithaa alleged.

Tamil blood is flowing in my veins also: Jayalalithaa
Chennai (PTI): Reacting sharply to Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M Karunanidhi's remark that he condoled the death of LTTE leader S P Tamilchelvan in his capacity as a Tamil, AIADMK chief Jayalalithaa on Tuesday said she too had Tamil spirit and "Tamil blood is flowing in her veins" as well.
"I know what he meant when he made that remark. He has apparently referred to my birth in Mysore. Though I was born in Mysore, I was born in a Tamil family and Tamil blood is flowing in my veins."
"My mother tongue is Tamil. When we accept those born in Sri Lanka as Tamils, we should also accept those born in Mysore, which is a part of India, as Tamils," she said in a statement here.
Jayalalithaa said Karunanidhi could not justify his "anti-national" act by making metaphorical remarks. "He can't be condoned for supporting the killers of former prime minister Rajiv Gandhi," she said.
Launching a virulent attack on DMK MP and Karunanidhi's daughter Kanimozhi for criticising her on the issue, Jayalalithaa said certain "mushrooms that had sprouted up overnight" had questioned her Tamil spirit without knowing the fact that she had organised World Tamil Conference to glorfiy Tamil language.
Recalling a press interview she gave during her acting career in 1972 at Mysore where she had gone for the shooting of a Tamil film, she said, "When the reporter asked me whether am a Kannadiga, I replied that though I was born in Mysore, I am a Tamil. This raised the hackles of Kannada fanatics who stormed the film studio in large numbers with deadly weapons and demanded an apology from me."

Jayalalithaa to move court on condolence note issue
CHENNAI: AIADMK general secretary Jayalalithaa has said she will petition the Supreme Court questioning Chief Minister M.Karunanidhi’s act of issuing a condolence note for slain LTTE leader Thamilselvan.
There could be no doubt that the act of a leader of the State in condoling the death of a leader of an outfit banned by India was clearly anti-national, Ms. Jayalalithaa charged in a statement on Tuesday. Such a person could not be allowed to continue as Chief Minister, she added.

TN CM’s Tiger requiem reverberates
Tamil Nadu chief minister Mr M Karunanidhi today came in for sharp attacks both from parties for and against the LTTE, with MDMK leader Mr Vaiko asking the DMK to snap ties with the Congress and BJP calling for the dismissal of the state government for his eulogy on slain Tiger leader SP Thamilchelvan.
Mr Vaiko, known for his strong LTTE leanings said the Congress-led UPA government at the Centre was “betraying Sri Lankan Tamils and abetting the island government’s genocidal war against Tamils by providing radars and weapons to Sinhalese government.”The Union government had not given permission to supply to essential commodities to the island Tamils affected by the war, he said. “Will the DMK snap relations with the Congress?” he asked.
Mr Vaiko is responding to appeals from Dravidar Kazhagam, parent body of the Dravidian movements to quit the AIADMK alliance, since its leader Ms Jayalalithaa acting against the interests of Sri Lankan Tamils. DMK’s party organ `Murasoli’ had also come out articles today asking Mr Vaiko to quit the AIADMK alliance.
State BJP general secretary Mr H Raja told reporters here that Mr Karunanidhi’s poem only showed his sympathy for the outlawed organisation. The DMK leader had only sympathy for LTTE, not for the island Tamils, he charged.
Meanwhile, a public meeting has been arranged today to pay tribute to the martyrs killed by the Sinhalese government”. President of Dravidar Kazhagam Mr K Veeramani and general secretary of Viduthalai Chiruthaigal, Mr Thol Thirumavalavan, who are close to the DMK will address the meeting.
Though, speeches hailing the LTTE are expected in the meeting, Mr Karunanidhi, whose DMK has its ideological moorings in Tamil nationalism is unlikely to prevent it.
In New Delhi, the Congress expressed its opposition to any such bids, asserting that the LTTE was a “terrorist organisation banned in India that was involved in the assassination of Rajiv Gandhi”.
“We will not support eulogising of terrorism in any form, we will not forget the action perpetrated by the LTTE to assassinate Rajiv Gandhi and we will continue to ask for punishment for such perpetrators,” the AICC spokesperson Mrs Jayanti Natarajan said here.
Treading cautiously on the issue under its coalition compulsions, Mrs Natarajan ~ who was asked a volley of questions over Mr Karunanidhi’s expression of grief in the form of an emotional poem for Thamilselvan killed in an air attack by Sri Lankan forces last week ~ said, “It was Mr Karunanidhi’s personal views, we don’t subscribe to it.”. “There is no meeting point here,” she said when asked what did she make of the DMK chief’s mourning whose party is part of the Congress-led UPA.
To questions whether the Tamil Nadu chief minister Mr Karunanidhi despite holding a constitutional post could praise anyone from such a banned terror organisation or if Congress would disapprove of it and deplore him, the Congress spokesperson refused to make any further comments.
On whether the Congress, which once accusing the DMK of being allegedly hand-in-glove with the LTTE had pulled down the then United Front government in the nineties, has now changed its stand to suit the current coalition era compulsions, Mrs Natarajan parried the question, saying our stand had then been amply explained after the Jain Commission’s report.
While echoing Mrs Natarajan’s remarks, the AICC media department chairman Mr Veerappa Moily also said, “UPA partners may have divergent views, ultimately what matters is the emergence of a consensus view,” adding the Congress and the UPA shared the views about the need for banning terror outfits.
Ridiculing the Congress for turning a “blind eye” to Mr Karunanidhi’s “dangerous” bid to mourn Thamilselvan’s death, the BJP said it only reflected the ruling party’s “lust” for power and its president Mrs Sonia Gandhi’s “helplessness” and was a matter of “grave concern”.
The BJP spokesman Mr Rajiv Pratap Rudy alleged that the Congress in its attempt to cling to power is even willing to ignore the tributes being paid to those members of a “dreaded extremist group” who were directly responsible for the assassination of its leader Rajiv Gandhi.
