Karunanidhi Is Desperate, Says Jayalalithaa

PTI 08 Dec 2010, 14:46:30 IST
Chennai,Dec 8 :  AIADMK chief Jayalalithaa today said there was no alternative to a Joint Parliamentary Committee probe into the 2G spectrum scam and the Opposition would not rest till the investigation was ordered.

"Mere resignation of A Raja as Telecom minister is not the end of the whole imbroglio. The inquiries have to go beyond estimating the loss suffered by the nation," she said in a statement here.

The Opposition will not rest until it (JPC probe) is ordered, she said.

She alleged that Chief Minister M Karunanidhi had taken exception to her demand that Raja should be interrogated and if, warranted, arrested.

"In the case of Raja and the spectrum scam, Karunanidhi knows that the place of crime is Delhi and not some place in Tamil Nadu. The complainants and witnesses cannot be coerced into turning hostile," she said.

This sense of helplessness is driving Karunanidhi into making desperate statements, she charged.  PTI
