MK Stalin welcomes discharge of Maran brothers

Welcoming a CBI court discharging Kalanidhi and Dayanidhi Maran in the Aircel-Maxis cases, DMK working president M. K. Stalin on Thursday (02nd February) said the verdict shows judicial institutions will not accept “false cases” foisted due to “political vendetta.”  Minutes after the CBI court judge O. P. Saini delivering his verdict, Stalin said the cases against Mr Kalanidhi and Mr Dayanidhi were based on “imaginative figures and unsubstantiated allegations.”

“The case were lodged to bring disrepute to both Kalanidhi Maran and Dayanidhi Maran for political reasons. Those people who filed cases against the two have now been proved wrong. The cases were also foisted to bring disrepute to the DMK,” Mr Stalin said about the cases against his nephews.

Maintaining that the cases against the media barons were “foisted” since they own one of the largest media houses in the country, Stalin said it was always a “political case” and now the court has refused to accept the allegations against the two at the initial stage itself. “I have been maintaining from the beginning that the cases were filed due to political animosity and I am very happy that they have been discharged from the case,” Stalin said.
