The AIADMK is neither shocked nor surprised by the Karnataka government’s decision to move the Supreme Court in the disproportionate assets case, party sources said.

Accusing the DMK and other political groups of “resorting to political vendetta,” Rajya Sabha member and AIADMK spokesperson A. W.  Rabi Bernard said: “We are confident of fighting the case in the Supreme Court.”

The development comes days after the AIADMK announced Ms. Jayalalithaa’s candidature for the R.K. Nagar by-elections.

Referring to the 2003 murder of the former Minister, T. Kiruttinan — a case in which DMK president M. Karunanidhi’s son and former Union Minister M.K. Alagiri was accused of conspiracy — Mr. Bernard asked: “Why did not Mr. Karunanidhi insist that the Andhra Pradesh government move the Supreme Court? They are playing political games in this [assets] case.”
