Here’s What DMK Chief Karunanidhi Said After Jaya’s Portfolios Allocated To Panneerselvam

After the portfolios of Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalithaa were allocated to state finance minister O Panneerselvam by the Governor as per her advice, DMK chief Karunanidhi termed the Governor’s statement as surprising. In a statement, Karunanidhi said,  “This is because a question has arisen among some people if Jayalalithaa had signed the file and rendered advice allotting her portfolios to Finance Minister Panneerselvam.”

He further added that the Governor’s communique on Tuesday that this portfolios’ allocation has been done on the advice of Chief Minister is surprising. Karuna also claimed that when a slew of leaders, including Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi, Union Minister Venkaiah Naidu and Stalin, visited the hospital “they were not given the opportunity to directly see her and enquire about her health”.
