People in Tamil Nadu voted out the DMK because they felt they were living in Hitler’s Germany or Idi Amin’s Uganda, Chief Minister J. Jayalalithaa said Tuesday.
The DMK regime curbed media freedom and “people felt they were living in Hitler’s Germany, under Mussolini or in Idi Amin’s Uganda”, she told a news conference here after meeting Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.
“There was no power, in most places no drinking water. The whole of Tamil Nadu had become one big garbage dump.
“The only thing everyone in power did was to amass money. People decided they had had enough.”
She blamed the “all pervading corruption” on the DMK.
“(There was) total lack of governance, nepotism, domination of one family, not just in all areas of governance but in every business and every trade. Everything was monopolised by one family.”
Jayalalithaa also blamed the DMK government for plunging Tamil Nadu into darkness.
“During our earlier tenure, from 2001 to 2006, Tamil Nadu was a power surplus state,” she said, pointing out that electricity outages had become endemic when the DMK ruled Tamil Nadu.
This, she said, was due to corruption in the Tamil Nadu Electricity Board.
“The DMK is facing the heat today, the DMK supremo’s family is facing the heat today.
“Many of the DMK leaders and leading lights of the party are facing a slew of corruption cases. Some are in jail, many more are likely to go to jail.”
