Says they should come out of the alliance to protect their parties

THENI: "Alliance partners in DMK-led Democratic Progressive Alliance could come out of it to protect their parties and for survival. It is the right time for them to exit," AIADMK presidium chairman K. Kalimuthu has said.

Launching his election campaign for the Assembly elections in Andipatti, constituency of the Chief Minister Jayalalithaa, on Monday night, Mr. Kalimuthu termed the DMK party as a `bad element.’ When the bad element is destroyed, others with it would also be destroyed, he cautioned.

The DMK president closed the doors to retain its partners in the alliance whereas AIADMK opened its doors to welcome them, he said.

Hitting hard on Central Ministers representing Tamil Nadu, he said the duty of the Central Government was to help the States when it faced natural calamities or disasters. Unfortunately, these Ministers not only blocked Central Government funds but also attempted to paralyse the State Government and its activities, he added.

"Union Finance Minister Chidambaram has no right to ask the State Government to show its accounts in connection with disbursal of funds," Mr. Kalimuthu said.

The State Government could not implement many important projects useful to people as they were blocked by Central Ministers.

"Didn’t Communists and MDMK partymen know that family rule would dominate Tamil Nadu, if DMK came to power?", he questioned.
