CHENNAI - Tamil Nadu Chief Minister and DMK Chief M. Karunanidhi Friday charged AIADMK General Secretary J. Jayalalithaa with trying to escape from appearing in a Bangalore court hearing a disproportionate wealth case against her, feigning ill health.
Speaking at a function at the DMK headquarters, Karunanidhi said the resolution passed by the Tamil Nadu assembly exempting Jayalalithaa from attending the house has been cited as a proof for her not being able to appear in the Bangalore court.
On Monday, the Tamil Nadu assembly passed a resolution exempting Jayalalithaa from attending the house on health grounds. The resolution was silent on the nature of ailment affecting her.
Karunanidhi said the disproportionate wealth case was filed against Jayalalithaa around 15 years back and more than 50 adjournments have been obtained in the case.
