Kancheepuram (Tamil Nadu): Even if the AIADMK emerges victorious in a single seat, the victor would be a ‘BJP MLA’. Hence people of Tamil Nadu should vote for his party and its allies in the April 6 Assembly elections. This was stated by DMK president MK Stalin while addressing a rally here Sunday.
In his campaign at Uthiramerur near here, Stalin said he had been saying that his party-led combine would win 200 out of 234 constituencies. However, considering the feedback from people the DMK top leader said, ‘only we are going to win in all the 234 constituencies’.
The lone AIADMK Lok Sabha member from Theni, P Ravindhranath, who is the son of Deputy Chief Minister O Panneerselvam functioned only as a ‘BJP MP’ and this proved his contention, Stalin claimed. “…We should not allow the BJP (to win) and similarly, the AIADMK also must not come (succeed),” Stalin asserted.
Stalin once more reiterated his allegation of corruption against Chief Minister K Palaniswami. The DMK chief claimed that the AIADMK is a ‘branch’ of the BJP. Palaniswami has time and again dismissed such graft allegations as lies and derogatory.
DMK has tremendous confidence that all its poll assurances including the Rs 1,000 ‘rights’ assistance per month to women family heads could be fulfilled, Stalin informed.
“After I announced this promise (Rs 1,000 assistance for women), Palaniswami declared that Rs 1,500 would be provided to women as if the AAIDMK is going to come to power. For sure Palaniswami is not going to assume power even if they promise a helicopter and aircraft for every household,” Stalin claimed. He asserted that the people were not ready to believe the AIADMK’s electoral promises.
