Karuna’s objection

Chennai: Taking exception to a reference to his son and Union minister M K Alagiri in the Tamil Nadu Assembly of which he was not a member, DMK chief M Karunanidhi today said the Speaker should have expunged the remarks.

‘A minister, who was replying on the debate on grants for the Adi Dravidar welfare, narrated a story. What is the connection between this and the department? It is not decent to take names of persons who are not members of the Assembly,’ he wrote in party mouthpiece ‘Murasoli’. He said his daughter Kanimozhi’s name was also mentioned and said Speaker D Jayakumar should have expunged them too.

DMK members were evicted from the Assembly after they were locked in a war of words with the ruling party members after Adi Dravidar and Tribal Welfare Minister N Subramanian narrated a story about a greedy farmer and referred to the “greedy” attitude of some DMK leaders, naming M K Stalin and Alagiri, both sons of Karunanidhi.
