Janata Party President Subramanian Swamy today criticised DMK chief M Karunanidhi for appealing to Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa to commute the death sentence of three convicts in the Rajiv Gandhi assassination case.

In a statement,Swamy said Karunanidhi should be “condemned” for constantly making an appeal to the Chief Minister for amnesty for the three convicts.

He also threatened to move the Supreme Court to have the matter heard in another state outside Tamil Nadu.

Swamy’s statement comes a day after Karunanidhi demanded that the Tamil Nadu Cabinet pass a resolution seeking clemency for the three convicts,whose execution has been stayed for eight weeks by the Madras High Court.
