Money from a relief fund set up by the Tamil Nadu government to help Tamils suffering due to the conflict in Sri Lanka might be diverted to the banned LTTE, AIADMK leader Jayalalilthaa alleged on Sunday.
“Since Karunanidhi himself is a sympathiser of LTTE, the people of Tamil Nadu feel that the funds collected might reach the banned outfit,” she said in a statement here.
Jayalalithaa also urged the people not to get carried away by the government’s move to set up the Sri Lankan Tamil Relief Fund.
She alleged that the DMK government had forcefully collected funds from the people and that a day’s wages of workers had been cut without their consent.
She also referred to Karunanidhi’s wife Dayalu Ammal’s donation of Rs 5 lakhs to the relief fund and wondered from where she had got the money and whether she was paying any income tax.
