Stalin warns of ‘historic blunder’
Chennai: DMK president M K Stalin has urged the Election Commission to conduct the bypolls for the 21 vacant Assembly seats in Tamil Nadu along with the Lok Sabha polls. In a statement on Sunday, Stalin said that it would be a historic blunder if the commission fails to conduct the bypolls. “I am shocked to see media reports that said Prime Minister Modi has assured that the bypolls for the vacant MLA seats would not be conducted... It would be an historical mistake if the Election Commission heeds to the pressure of BJP and I warn it would have consequences,” the DMK chief said.
