Karunanidhi’s charge baseless, says Jayalalithaa

Special Correspondent

CHENNAI: AIADMK supremo Jayalalithaa described as “baseless” Chief Minister M. Karunanidhi’s statement that the Centre had provided arms and military support to Sri Lanka during her tenure as Chief Minister.

“Modern weapons and military training are being provided only in the last couple of years to the Sri Lankan forces. Anyway, when I was Chief Minister, the DMK was part of the Central government. So Mr. Karunanidhi was responsible for such acts,” Ms. Jayalalithaa said in a press release issued on Sunday.

Referring to the Chief Minister’s statement that the Centre does not consult the States or other Ministers when taking such decisions, she also asked if Mr. Karunanidhi could not find these details out when Tamils were being affected in Sri Lanka by these actions.
