He also said that Jayalalithaa would be the Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu if the party-led combine was voted to power in the April 13 Assembly elections.
Speaking on the alliance he mentioned that DMDK is the second largest constituent of the AIADMK-led front and that Jayalalitha would turn out to be the next CM. He was addressing a series of election meetings in the district.
"Karunanidhi was making such remarks to create confusion in the AIADMK-led alliance," he charged.
Questioning the rationalist credentials of Karunanidhi, Vijaykant sought to know why the DMK patriarch always sported a yellow shawl and a particular stone studded ring.
"Karunanidhi claims himself a true follower of (rationalist leader) 'Thanthai Periyar' (E V Ramasamy) but has been wearing the yellow shawl and the ring. Why is he doing so? He should remove them immediately if he is a real rationalist and sincere follower of Periyar," the DMDK founder said.
Periyar, founder of Dravida Kazhagam, fought for promoting social justice and rational outlook through his self-respect movement in the state.
Vijaykant expressed confidence that the people would put an end to the 'family rule' of Karunanidhi in the polls.
The DMDK leader, who fought the previous polls on his own since floating the party in 2005, also said, "MGR (late chief minister M G Ramachandran) is my guru and so I referred an alliance with the AIADMK founded by him."
