Chennai: Hitting back at V K Sasikala, DMK Working President MK Stalin on Wednesday said it had nothing to with the ruling dispensation’s “internal squabbles” and accused the AIADMK General Secretary of making false allegations after failing to become chief minister through a “short cut”.

Stalin also sought a CBI probe into Panneerselvam’s allegations that he was forced to resign to make way for Sasikala.

The Tamil Nadu Opposition Leader also asked Sasikala to respond to Panneerselvam’s various allegations rather than pointing fingers at his party and accused her of trying to find a way out of the problems in her party.

“Unable to become Chief Minister through a short cut, she has made a fake allegation against DMK just to find a way out of the problems,” he said.

“DMK is not responsible for the political bickerings and internal squabbles of AIADMK. Don’t point fingers at DMK, if you can’t respond to Panneeselvam’s charges,” he said.

On Sasikala’s remarks that he and Panneerselvam were looking at each other and laughing together in the Assembly, Stalin described it as a part of his party’s “political decency”.

He said he used to exchange pleasantries even with the former Chief Minister, the late Jayalalithaa, and asked if that also amounted to similar allegations.

“As Leader of Opposition, I had attended her swearing-in as Chief Minister last year and greeted her for which Jayalalithaa had thanked me. Could Sasikala ask the same question to Jayalalithaa,” he said in a statement.
