Congress uses Madras HC order on Karunanidhi’s burial to take potshots at BJP

The Congress used the Madras high court order on Wednesday allowing the burial of DMK patriarch M Karunanidhi at the Marina beach as a stick to beat the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) with.

Congress spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala took to Twitter to describe the high court ruling on Karunanidhi’s burial as a “huge setback” for those “conspiring to deny Anna his rightful burial place.”

“Huge setback for proxy callers of Delhi Durbar conspiring to deny Anna his rightful Burial place. Rahulji strongly supported the idea of a memorial for Karunanidhi at Marina. Why are Central/State Govts silent? Huge victory of justice for DMK. Long live Anna,” he tweeted.

The BJP is seen as close to the ruling AIADMK which is set to back the NDA’s candidate for the Rajya Sabha deputy chairman polls scheduled for Thursday.

The bitter rivalry between the DMK and the AIADMK played out once again after DMK chief’s death on Tuesday with the state government citing environmental rules to disallow Karunanidhi’s burial at the Marina beach before high court ruled in the DMK’s favour.
