Karunanidhi's arrest
The manner of arrest of the former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister, Mr M. Karunanidhi, needs to be strongly condemned. It is deplorable for a Chief Minister to use State administrative machinery to settle personal scores. If this could happen to a four-time Ch ief Minister and two Union Cabinet Ministers in the world's largest democracy, what will be the fate of the common man in a similar situation?

Governor's role
When the Centre requests a report on particular incidents in a State, the Governor invariably has to depend on the State's administrative machinery to do the needful. No Raj Bhavan is equipped with sufficient infrastructure to collect the required inform ation independently. This is so in the case of Tamil Nadu. The Centre was keen to get its report on the arrest of Mr M. Karunanidhi, but it did not get a speedy response.
