Karunanidhi spoke at DMK headquarters in Chennai, after 12 days of silence he reacted to Ms Jayalalithaa being arrested and jailed. He spoke in a party meeting regarding stock of the law and order situation in the state after the former Tamil Nadu chief minister was denied bail by the Karnataka High Court this week.
The DMK chief said that, “Jayalalithaa trapped herself in the net. She created a situation as if there’s none to question her. Today, Jayalalithaa reads her own fall as a lesson. Unknowingly, Jayalalithaa has helped us in lifting the Dravidian movement”.
Ms Jayalalithaa became the first sitting chief minister to be sent to jail after a special court in Bangalore found her guilty in the Rs. 66 crore disproportionate assets case, on September 27th.
Her lawyers are expected to move the Supreme Court today for bail.
