CHENNAI: The Managing Director of the Sun Network Private Ltd Kalanithi Maran on Friday said it was on Chief Minister M Karunanidhi’s suggestion and insistence that the division of Sun TV shares was made between the two families.
Releasing the letter written by Mr Kalanithi Maran to the Chief Minister, former Union Minister Mr Dayanidhi Maran said when the company left Anna Arivalayam and handed over the property to the DMK Trust, 200 photographs were taken, which showed the premises in an “as is where is condition.” As for the opinion polls published in Dinakaran, he said other newspapers also published such polls.
Mr. Kalanithi Maran, in his letter, said: “Please do not keep on levelling false charges against us. In the last one and a half years, when others accused us unnecessarily, we maintained silence. But, today, when you made false charges through the press, we are unable to bear them.”
