Karunanidhi says Kanimozhi in bad shape


Karunanidhi says Kanimozhi in bad shape

Back from Delhi after meeting his daughter Kanimozhi in Tihar jail, a visibly disturbed DMK chief M Karunanidhi on Wednesday said she has been jailed under "inhumane conditions'' and was in poor health.


Speaking to reporters at his CIT Colony residence here soon after his arrival from the national capital, Karunanidhi, when asked about his meeting with his daughter, said: ``Kanimozhi and Sharad Kumar have been jailed under inhumane conditions. They are unable to handle the heat.''


Karunanidhi said both Kanimozhi and the Kalaignar TV managing director were in a bad shape. ``Due to the oppressive Delhi heat, they have developed boils all over the body,'' the DMK chief said, accusing the CBI of acting on media reports against Kanimozhi and trying to prove all false allegations. He said the DMK would face the challenge posed by the CBI legally.


On the DMK-Congress relations, Karunanidhi first said it was for the media to speculate. When pressed further, the DMK patriarch said the relations were fine and Union aviation minister Vayalar Ravi met him as a close friend during his stay in New Delhi. ``No other Congress leader met me,'' he said.


To a question, he hinted that his party was not averse to the Prime Minister being brought under the purview of the Lokpal Bill. He recalled his government had introduced an anti-corruption law in the 1970s which brought the chief minister too under its purview.


On the party's support to Anna Hazare, Karunanidhi said: ``The DMK is ready to support any good cause but not to any individual's personal benefit.'' Karunanidhi said he was unaware of the probe commission being set up by the government to go into the construction of the new secretariat. He said as for as the DMK was concerned, there was no irregularity in the construction of the new secretariat.

1. He talking rubbish since he wants Spl. Court when it opens in July to grant her bail ! Offocurse I am not saying that she should not get bail. BUT,

2. Is he not aware of thousands of Mother in Law / Sister In Law in Jail under S. 498a IPC that he is seeing only inhuman conditions now when his daughter is in Jail?. Common ex CM wearing rainbow glasses!!!!!

3. All politicians / family memebers especially their (family's) women should once in lifetime go to Jail to understand first hand how thousands of common women of this country suffer the same conditions under gender biased Laws especially S. 498a IPC. Are they not someonece mother and sister and or daughter that only he is seeing now when he sees his own daughter in Jail !

He being politician is lucky that media is taking his bytes, what about thousands of unlucky sisters, mothers and daughters of common man languishing in Jail in same conditions ??? Has he got guts to voice against THESE COMMON WOMEN's CONDITIONS IN JAIL ALSO ??????? NO for him only women in bad confition in Tihar Jail is offcourse his own'n Karunanidhi wake up old man.........

His dialogues will always be pun. Perhaps this statement might have been to mollify his concubine but who knows he did not instruct not to release her from jail lest the impending danger as a family fued? When he disowned her as daughter when the same Kanimozhi was born lest it would spoil his position since he ascended as CM as first time he can go to any extent to safegaurd his family interest


Now he can see the unhuman conditions of jail but when his daughter was not in jail, he was not able to see such conditions.

Most of our leaders are sitting in A.C. Rooms and are unable to see the real picture of the society.

All our leaders, who are in jail, are being provided all 5 star facilities in jail but a commmon poor man is facing problem even for his food.

Our leaders are unable to see that Laloo is cooking "KHIR" while he was sent to jail in Chara Case and all other persons are going to meet him without any problem but in normal conditons, nobody can meet any person in the jail without sepnding money for the same.

There is a good old saying in Tamil 'தான் ஆடவிட்டாலும் தன் தசை ஆடும்'. With the heinous attacks his party did during their regime they are harvesting its bitter fruits. Can some one forget that reign of terror on Madurai Dinakaran office on the 'heir-survey'?

If this is the jail then anyone may like to stay..................................forever.

No home loan, no gym charges, no rents, no power bills, customized food, proper medical check ups and doctors on call, landscaping free, no cable or dish TV charges, free laundry, free air conditioning, civilized companions, free library, internet, free studies and courses, free world class security, gourmet cuisine, world class hygiene.......................

This shall put our best 7 star hotels to shame.

Karuna would have never complained.

Catch is if this type of correctional facility is ever built  in our country, no commoner shall find a place be it a murderer, scamster, rapist, terrorist………….until or unless it is a……………………….politician worth its salt.


Looking into the pressures being built to have a lokpal, coalition governance the only option for political survival……….and so on, you can bet and win ….that such a correctional facility shall be built with tax payers money.


God Bless us.
