TN has no role in Katchatheevu issue: Karuna accuses Jaya

Accusing Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J. Jayalalithaa of  “misleading” people on the issue of Katchatheevu, DMK chief M. Karunanidhi on Sunday has reminded her that any steps to retrieve the island ceded to Sri Lanka has to be taken by the Union Government and that the state governments have no role in the issue.

Mr. Karunanidhi has said the AIADMK chief is giving him opportunities to “bring out the truth” on several issues, the Deccan Chronicle reported.

He had said that the Chief Minister was misleading the people only with an eye on the elections.

“Ms. Jayalalithaa has said several times that it is the Union Government which has to take steps to retrieve Katchatheevu islands from Sri Lanka and that the Chief Minister has no role in it. She had also said that if the Chief Minister had any role, the islet would have been retrieved long back,” Mr. Karunanidhi said.

He said the Chief Minister has said that he was responsible for Katchatheevu being given to Sri Lanka.

“Just before elections, she says she will retrieve Katchatheevu if she comes to back to power. This is just lie,” the DMK chief said.

Addressing a public meeting on Friday, the Chief Minister had accused the DMK chief of being responsible for Katchatheevu being given to Sri Lanka.

    First of all can you stand up and talk in the stage? Why suffer wasting your energy.

    Let these two Demagogues fight it out. As far as we are concerned Kachchtivu is our sovereign territory. We are prepared to go to war on this issue. South Indian fishermen are poaching in Sri Lankan waters saying that Palk Bay is their traditional fishing area and the Indian Central Government seems to be spineless to declare the true position. The actual position is that the Indian Government has a vast plan, to subjugate Sri Lanka. This is shown by their stand on the BRIDGE.

    Like Mahinda, this man also will do anything to retain the power.

    He thinks that he is a lad of 25 years, what a greedy fellow he is.

    In order to inherit the power, if you tell him to be up-side-down, he will do it.

    He is also greedy for power just like MR to earn for his family. He earned in Billions while in power and still he is greedy for money.
