The story of Dayanidhi Maran having more than 300 telephones looks unbelievable at first sight but triggers revulsion if conditioned by all the accusations of the 2G scam hurled at the DMK. Now Maran has sued the Indian Express and if the charge is proved unsubstantiated, Maran will take the Indian Express to the cleaners. Otherwise Maran will be toast politically.
Dayanidhi Maran's lawyer's statement on suing newspaper
Chennai: Dayanidhi Maran, the Textiles Minister and a senior leader of the DMK, has denied reports that he misused his office as Telecom Minister to establish a virtual telephone exchange of nearly 300 phone lines at his house which were then secretly made available for use to Sun TV, which is owned by his brother, Kalanidhi.
A statement from Mr Maran's lawyer also declared that he is suing a Tamil newspaper that has repeatedly reported that Mr Maran cost the country hundreds of crores through the alleged telecom scam.
