In an apparent bid to woo the Congress ahead of the Lok Sabha polls, All India [ Images ] Anna Drravida Munnetra Kazhagam leader Jayalalithaa [ Images ] on Thursday asked that party to snap ties with the Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam [ Images ] and withdraw its support to the Karunanidhi [ Images ] government.
"The DMK is caught in a quicksand. Nobody can help it out. Those who want to help it will also be caught in the quicksand and the Congress should come out of web of the DMK," she said, while solemnising weddings of 61 of her partymen in Chennai.
Jayalalithaa said she was giving this suggestion to the Congress if it wanted to face the electorate during the Lok Sabha polls honourably.
"I am suggesting this because of the good relationship the AIADMK and Congress enjoyed in the past. If Congress does not listen, it will also be caught in the quicksand like the DMK," she said.
She also said that Congress by snapping ties with the DMK will "remedy the sin" it had committed by aligning with that party.
