2G scam has sent another political heavyweight to the jail. Kanimozhi, daughter of DMk chief Karunanidhi, has been sent to Tihar jail.
Kanimozhi had applied for a bail, the special CBI court rejected her application and sent her to jail along with Kalaignar TV managing director Sharad Kumar. Both have been charge sheeted by CBI for taking a bribe worth 200 Crore through Kalaignar Tv from 2G scam accused A Raja. Kalaignar Tv is run by DMK and Kanimozhi and Sharad Kumar has 20 per cent stake each. DMK Chief Karunanidhi’s wife Dayalu Ammal holds 60% share in the Tv Channel, but was surprisingly spared by CBI.
Kanimozhi wept in court on hearing her bail petition getting rejected. Ironically, she was being comforted by A Raja’s wife. A Raja and host of other BIG names will be waiting for her at the Tihar jail now. In jail, Kanimozhi will be allowed a mat, a fan, medicines, magazines and will also have an attached bathroom. Apparently, her cell neighbours are going to a pimp and a spy!
But her jail term may not see any political changes at the Center. DMK has been pushed to the wall because of their shameful defeat in Tamil nadu elections, and they can’t risk moving out of the Congress alliance as of now. Congress will be relishing the situation as they would quickly want to grab AIADMK’s hand in hope of securing seats for the 2014 elections.
