Jaya is not a Tamil: CM Karuna

(December 10, Chennai, Sri Lanka Guardian) Setting the stage for a fresh political controversy, Chief Minister M Karunanidhi today implicitly painted AIADMK supremo J Jayalalithaa as being a non-Tamil.

Speaking at the wedding of Tamilnadu Minister for Revenue I Periyasami’s son, Karunanidhi said a senior politician had not condemned Lankan Army Commander Sarath Fonseka’s remarks on the leaders of Tamilnadu. ‘This is just because she was not a Tamil.’
