DMK ready for any elec­tion, says Stalin

‘Modi govt. has failed even Hin­dus’

The Hindu - - TAMIL NADU - Spe­cial Cor­re­spon­dent

DMK pres­i­dent M.K. Stalin on Satur­day said the goal of his party was to de­feat “the cor­rupt AIADMK regime and the com­mu­nal and au­to­cratic BJP at the Cen­tre that pro­tects the State gov­ern­ment”. He al­leged that Prime Min­is­ter Naren­dra Modi had let down even Hin­dus. Ad­dress­ing the Mup­pe­rum Vizha at Villup­pu­ram, Mr. Stalin said the venue was a proof that the DMK was fully ready for the elec­tions.

“You may ask whether I mean the by­elec­tions to Tiru­varur and Thiru­parankun­dram con­stituen­cies or the lo­cal body elec­tions or the Assem­bly elec­tions or the Lok Sabha polls. What­ever may be the na­ture of the elec­tions, the DMK will emerge vic­to­ri­ous,” he said.

Ac­cus­ing Mr. Modi of run­ning a gov­ern­ment against demo­cratic norms, he said the Cen­tre had earned a rep­u­ta­tion that matched that of the fas­cist regimes of Adolf Hitler and Mus­solini.

Mr. Stalin said though the BJP sought to cre­ate trou­ble in Tamil Nadu by say­ing that it would not tol­er­ate even the slight­est in­sult to the Hin­dus, it had ac­tu­ally failed to pro­tect their in­ter­ests. He won­dered what had hap­pened to the prom­ise that ₹15 lakh would be de­posited in ev­ery in­di­vid­ual’s ac­counts.

Al­leg­ing that the AIADMK gov­ern­ment had de­stroyed the ad­min­is­tra­tion and was play­ing sec­ond fid­dle to save its skin, Mr. Stalin said that those who were in power were “thor­oughly un­qual­i­fied jok­ers.”

“We have to up­root the cor­rupt and slave AIADMK gov­ern­ment. We can do it,” he said and called upon the cadre to help him achieve what his fa­ther wanted to achieve.
