dmk bocotts jairam ramesh


DMK snubs Congress

Angry Karunanidhi withdraws
Forest Minister to meet 
Jairam Ramesh

By R Rajagopalan

DMK is upset with the Centre for not declaring the revival of Legislative Council
to show its anger Karunanidhi on Friday directed N Selvaraj to boycott the
Forests Ministers meeting convened by Jairam Ramesh in Thiruvandandapuram on
Sunday. DMK chief directly accuses Jairam Ramesh for stopping Dr Manmohan Singh
from attending the Adayar Green House project.

DMK is suspicious of roles played by Jairam Ramesh to get Congress nearer to AIADMK.
Senior leaders cry foul that Jairam is directly responsible for Rahul Gandhi not
meeting Karunanidhi. To explode the bubble of this rumours, DMK is now taking
directly on Jairam Ramesh.

DMK has listed our three crucial issues  with the absence of response from Congress
and Centre, Karunanidhi is now  turning the table against Congress.  Mid February is too crucial
for DMK Congress alliance, and sort out formulae for seat sharing.

DMK wants the announcements of revival of Legislative Council, clearance of Ram Sethu
project by Union Ministry of Shipping by approaching Supreme Court to vacate the stay,
and third most important is CBI might approach DMK first family with set of questions to the
wives of Chief Minister and daughter Kanimozhi on 2G scam.

But the latest to come to light is a direct rebuke by DMK to 
Congress by boycotting the Meeting of Ministers of Forests from Southern States 
convened to discuss environmental issues in the four states. 

DMK Chief Minister Karunanidhi asked N Selvaraj Forest Minister not to attend the Southern States
Forests Ministers meeting as it is being presided over by Jairam Ramesh Union Minister for Enviroment.

It is a protest by the DMK to Jairam Ramesh as he stopped Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh opening
Adayar Green House Park in January, also not approving the personal projects of T R Baalu  where
environmental clearances are pending with Ministry.

N Selvaraj Minister of Forests Tamil Nadu told senior officials of  Union Ministry of Environment that 
he is abstaining after the directions from the Chief Minister.
