DMK's proposed protest on wealth case 'laughable', says Jaya

Ridiculing DMK's proposed protest against Jayalalithaa for seeking frequent adjournments in the wealth case, the AIADMK chief on Tuesday said staging protests against the Opposition on a legal matter was 'unheard of' for a ruling party.

"It is a legal matter which has to be fought in court. Instead of that, announcing staging protests against me outside the court is laughable," she said.

DMK treasurer and Deputy Chief Minister M K Stalin had announced yesterday his party would stage state-wide protests on August 4 against Jayalalithaa for seeking frequent adjournments in the disproportionate wealth case at Bangalore "on some ground or the other and dragging the case for 13 years".

In a statement, Jayalalithaa said it was normal for the Opposition to only stage protests against the government on various issues. "The DMK's latest salvo against me is unheard of," she said.

A special court in Bangalore has set August 6 for commencement of trial in the case after turning down Jayalalithaa's appeal for fresh translation of documents relating to the wealth case in which her estranged foster son V N Sudhakaran is also accused.
