Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M Karunanidhi today asserted that the security provided to Opposition leader Jayalalithaa has not been curtailed as alleged by her party.

Responding to the charge made by AIADMK's P K Sekar Babu in the state Assembly that Jayalalithaa was not given adequate security especially while addressing public meetings, Karunanidhi said she was being provided security she was entitled to.

He said he had often assured that she was being given adequate security, and asked 'under which category', implying she was enjoying 'Z' plus security.

"I have repeatedly made it clear that what security cover she is being provided and under which category," he said in response to Babu's charges that the chief minister would be held responsible if something happened to Jayalalithaa as he held the Home portfolio.

Taking a dig at the Opposition member, Karunanidhi hoped that AIADMK workers themselves did not harm their leader in the process of targeting him on this issue.
