In a veiled attack on BJP, ally DMDK on Wednesday said that some of the political parties were attempting to divide the people on communal lines.
Premalatha’s remarks on ‘communal politics’ practised by some parties was seen as an indirect attack on the BJP.
She also said that her previous speech on alliance was misinterpreted. “The DMDK always respects the alliance sentiments, but other parties should also respect the same sentiment. We stand by our words,” said Premalatha.
Speaking about the upcoming urban local body elections, Premalatha said that the party cadre should work hard for the victory of the party and the alliance.
She further said that in Delhi, Arvind Kejriwal has become Chief Minister for the third time by following policies of Vijayakant. “Our captain (Vijayakant) promised in 2006 that if DMDK comes to power ration products will be supplied to the houses and Kejriwal came to power with the same promise. It was Tamil Nadu which has missed the development by voting for DMK,” said Premalatha.
In the function, Vijayakant just spoke a few words (Can you hear me) which evoked good response from the party cadre.
