DMK spokesperson TKS Elangovan on Monday slammed CPI leader Mutharasan for claiming DMK is trying to plot murder against MDMK leader Vaiko.

Talking to The News Minute, he said, “These are foolish talks by political leaders. Why will we plot to murder Vaiko? Who is he now?”

“These are all comments by people who are going to lose the elections. They are trying to create sympathy for themselves so that they can get some votes,” said Elangovan.

He stated that these charges are utterly baseless. “They just want to take advantage of any situation that comes,” he said.

DMK will be filing a police complaint against Mutharasan for making such comments, he said.

CPI leader Mutharasan had said on Sunday that about 150 DMK party workers had gathered on the Mayiladuthurai-Thiruvarur Road rallying from the DMK district office with wooden logs and iron rods. He added that three PWA cadres Selvaraj, driver Durai and Mohammed Irshat had been attacked and are undergoing treatment in Tiruvarur Government Hospital.

He told The New Indian Express, “Even though they chased Vaiko’s vehicle and attacked, he escaped unhurt. Had he stopped there, Vaiko might have been killed.”

Mutharasan said that a police complaint had been registered in Tiruvarur police station against DMK cadres.

Responding to the attacks, he said that if such incidences prevail, they will also pick up wooden logs and iron rods.
