Jayalalitha attempts to woo Congress
February 19, 2009 18:13 IST
In an apparent bid to woo the Congress ahead of the Lok Sabha polls, All India Anna Drravida Munnetra Kazhagam leader Jayalalithaa on Thursday asked that party to snap ties with the Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam and withdraw its support to the Karunanidhi government.
Jayalalithaa said she was giving this suggestion to the Congress if it wanted to face the electorate during the Lok Sabha polls honourably.
"I am suggesting this because of the good relationship the AIADMK and Congress enjoyed in the past. If Congress does not listen, it will also be caught in the quicksand like the DMK," she said.
She also said that Congress by snapping ties with the DMK will "remedy the sin" it had committed by aligning with that party.
