The high-octane Tamil Nadu Assembly elections will be held in a single phase on April 6 and Congress-DMK and BJP-AIADMK alliance are the major groups contesting against each other in the southern state. Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) president MK Stalin promised to visit the people of Tamil Nadu’s Salem district in all situations and not only during elections. Asserting issues of Tamilian rights and identities, Stalin alleged that the ruling AIDMK government has taken Tamil Nadu back 50 years. He further said that all the rights of the people of Tamil Nadu have been taken by introducing NEET, the new education policy and the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA).
Grandson of the late DMK general secretary K. Anbazhagan, Mr. Vetriazhagan exclusively told NewsX that DMK will form govt in Tamil Nadu. Ahead of the Tamil Nadu Assembly polls, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi earlier had slammed the ruling AIADMK and called it a ‘mask’ of the RSS and BJP. In the battle ground of TN, Rahul stirred quite a controversy when he said the state chief minister E Palaniswami ‘is forced to bow down in front of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Home Minister Amit Shah’.
MK Stalin-led DMK, which has been out of power since 2011 in the state, is in a head-to-head battle with ruling party AIADMK in nearly 130 constituencies. The people have traditionally seen the DMK and the AIADMK hold power alternately since 1967. Actor-turned-politician Kamal Hassan’s Makkal Needhi Maiam (MNM) and the alliance between TTV Dhinakaran’s Amma Makkal Munnetra Kazhagam (AMMK) and Asaduddin Owaisi’s All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) are trying to appease voters with the third alternative in the state.
