Defending daughter Kanimozhi, Karunanidhi takes blame on himself

Defending daughter Kanimozhi, jailed in the 2G scam case, DMK chief M Karunanidhi on Sunday (05-June-2011) said it was he who insisted on her being a shareholder in Kalaignar TV, to which the money related to the spectrum allocation was routed.

"Kanimozhi's mistake is my mistake. It was I who compelled her to become a shareholder in Kalaignar TV with a view to settle her a base for her future," he said addressing a public meeting in his native constituency.

Karunanidhi said before "sorrow destroys" him, he will do all in his might to save and nurture the Dravidian movement. Kanimozhi, a minority stake-holder in the channel, has been jailed over transaction of Rs 200 crore from 2G accused Shahid Balwa''s firm, DB Realty.

While the DMK patriarch started mentioning about his retirement from active politics, he quickly changed track and said that he would not quit from public life (as of now).

The 88 year old former Tamil Nadu chief minister claimed that CBI, which is probing the case, had named his daughter, a Rajya Sabha member, since it had to hold someone accountable.
