Chennai: Marumalarchi Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (MDMK) leader Vaiko walked out in a huff in the middle of a television interview when asked whether his party was offered a huge sum by Tamil Nadu's ruling All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK).
A visibly-angry Vaiko was seen getting up from his seat before the question was completed, saying: "I am cancelling the interview with this."
The interviewer had asked Vaiko whether the MDMK "which is acting as the B-team of AIADMK was offered Rs.1,500 crore by the ruling party".
To an earlier question on what basis he had levelled a charge against DMK that it had offered Rs.500 crore and 80 seats to DMDK to join its alliance, Vaiko said: "It was on the basis of reliable information I told that."
Vaiko said he would face the issue in the court.
The interview clip was uploaded on social media.

On Friday speaking to reporters, Vaiko had alleged that DMK had offered DMDK led by actor-turned-politician A.Vijaykant 80 seats to contest and Rs.500 crore cash if he joined the DMK alliance.
DMK president M.Karunanidhi immediately sent Vaiko a legal notice for defaming him, demanding withdrawal of the false statement within seven days and expressing regret over it.
