"DMK will welcome whoever gives a hand (Congress symbol) to support minority communities and are against communalism," Karunanidhi said on Monday.

Attacking Chief Minister Jayalalithaa, he said she was facing a disproportionate assets case in a Bangalore court.

"The proceedings are being dragged on and today the Supreme Court had granted a stay,” he said.

The Apex Court stayed for three weeks the day-to-day trial in the 18-year-old Rs 66.65-crore disproportionate assets case against Jayalalithaa by allowing the plea of the Special Public Prosecutor (SPP) who has to undergo medical treatment.

"The case has been adjourned a hundred times," he alleged.

Karunanidhi also alleged law and order in the state were in shambles.

Appealing to the people to vote for the DMK-led front, the DMK chief introduced the front's candidates at Salem, Namakkal, Dharmapuri and Kallakurichi.
