Chennai: Ruling AIADMK in Tamil Nadu on Saturday lashed out at arch rival DMK for enacting what it called a "drama" over remission for the seven convicts in the Rajiv Gandhi assassination case.
Referring to a statement of DMK chief M Karunanidhi backing Tamil Nadu government's stance on the remission, AIADMK also cited DMK treasurer Stalin's criticism that it was a drama being done with an eye on elections.
"It is the DMK which is staging drama," All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam mouthpiece Dr Namadhu MGR said on Saturday in a write-up referring to the two opposing views of its rival.
It also alleged that the Karunanidhi-led Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam was instigating its ally Congress to raise its voice against the convicts' release.
Ridiculing Karunanidhi for "enacting many dramas on Eelam issue", the ruling party said the number of such drams would be more than the number of plays scripted by father of Tamil theatre and playwright Sankaradas Swamigal.
It also said if the government's action appeared to be a drama for Stalin then it was "a problem of his vision."
DMK's ally Congress's Tamil Nadu unit president EVKS Elanogovan had said his party was ready to accept the court's decision on the issue....
