DMK chief M Karunanidhi on Tuesday accused the J Jayalalithaa government of adopting “double-standards” by opposing the Sethusamudram project in the Supreme Court and said that it was a “betrayal” with the state.

“The AIADMK government had made a written submission in the SC saying the project was not at all needed,” Karunanidhi,a staunch supporter of the project,said in a statement. Holding that AIADMK had supported the project in its 2001 and 2004 election manifestos saying it would cut down journey time of ships,he said it later changed its stance only to deny credit to DMK which kickstarted work on the project.
