DMK, a party sans values: Palaniswami
Chief Minister Edappadi K Palaniswami on Sunday came down strongly on the DMK and called it a party without values and an immoral party, at the concluding event of the MGR Centenary function held at the YMCA grounds in Nandanam.
The meeting which was held in the evening attracted a large number of AIADMK supporters and party cadre from across the State.
At the meeting, Palaniswami attacked Stalin for making baseless allegations against the State government.
“A DMK functionary attacked and kicked a woman in a beauty parlour in Perambalur, but did the party president MK Stalin take any action on him? Did he at least condemn the man who attacked the woman in the parlour?” asked Palaniswami.
He further said Stalin is speaking as if he is the saviour of women, but in reality, his party men attack women and Stalin does not even condemn the incident, leave alone action taken on the cadre.
“DMK does not have any moral right to criticise the AIADMK government functioning on the lines of late Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa,” said Palaniswami.
“Stalin is repeatedly lying on the functioning of the State government despite being given repeated clarifications. The previous DMK government did not initiate a single welfare scheme for the people and all it brought was pain for them,” said Palaniswami.
He also said that DMK party men are repeatedly involved in harassing the public.
“When you eat in a biriyani shop, you are supposed to pay the bill, but DMK men attacked the shop owner for demanding money. Similarly, in a cell phone shop, the owner was attacked by a DMK cadre for asking money,” said Palaniswami.
The Chief Minister went on to add that the law and order situation in the State remained the same as it was during Jayalalithaa’s tenure. “A police station in Coimbatore and one in Anna Nagar were chosen as top 10 police stations in the country which is proof that law and order situation in the State is better,” said Palaniswami.
Before the meeting began, Deputy Chief Minister O Panneerselvam inaugurated a photo exhibition of MGR.
