Karunanidhi has said that the TN voters should “now be decent enough to return the money for not having voted for my party”
He elaborated “Everything works on quid pro quo man. I feel shortchanged. My party workers, in good faith, distributed over 100,000 crores in crisp wads to the TN Voter, all for a small favour… and we got this.”
Kaurna is also mulling legal options. Ace Lawyer Ram Jethamalani may take up Karuna’s case in the “People of Tamil Nadu vs. Karunanidhi in 2011 Elections no vote for cash case” to be heard in the Madras High Court. Witnesses from the prosecution side will include luminaries such as Azhagiri and Stalin.
“The degree of hypocrisy is astounding. People of TN haven’t delivered despite accepting money, and then they have the gall to call my client corrupt.” Jethmalani argued. “The media, instead of pulling up the public on this issue, is instead praising them to high-heavens for exercising their so-called democratic right”
