Conspiracy to topple my government, says Karunanidhi
February 20, 2009 23:43 IST
Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M Karunanidhi [Images] today alleged that "there is a conspiracy" to topple his government, saying "planned incidents of violence" were being organised as part of this.
In an apparent reference to the clash between police and the advocates at Madras High Court yesterday and the subsequent incidents of violence across the state, Karunanidhi said "some persons are conspiring to topple the government... but we will continue to walk the chosen path of "justice and honesty," he said.
Speaking at the inauguration of the 'Padi grade separator' here through video conferencing from his hospital bed where he is recuperating from a spinal cord surgery, the chief minister said he was "watching all the planned incidents of violence".
"There is a conspiracy to topple my government which is striving for the welfare of people... the conspirators are being aided by some politicians and a section of media.. but it is not fair to trouble a government delivering good governance," he said.
