Karunanidhi asks Jayalalithaa to justify power claims

A day after CM Jayalalithaa claimed Tamil Nadu’s electricity needs have been fulfilled, DMK chief Karunanidhi has asked her to answer the people over charges of irregularities in <g data-gr-id="10">State run</g> power monolith Tamil Nadu Generation and Distribution Corporation.  Jayalalithaa had on Tuesday claimed that “Tamil Nadu now shines as a state which has fulfilled its electricity needs.” She cited factors like power generation from new projects like <g data-gr-id="14">Vallur</g> and Mettur and long-term Power Purchase Agreements to substantiate that she addressed the issue of serious power shortage when she assumed office in 2011.
Quoting extensively from media reports on the charges in the court case, the DMK chief said Jayalalithaa’s claims were “strange and amusing.”
