Discard Palaniswami like demonetised currency, says Udhayanidhi at Ambur
DMK youth wing general secretary Udhayanidhi Stalin created a flutter on Wednesday at Ambur by showing a demonetised Rs 1,000 notes to the public and calling upon them to make Chief Minister Edappadi K Palaniswami a demonetised currency.
Campaigning for Ambur DMK candidate and sitting MLA AS Vilvanathan, Udhayanidhi slammed Prime Minister Narendra Modi for his demonetisation drive. The PM said that the nation would prosper, but what really happened was that many died while standing in queues to take out money from their ATMs, he added.
While he was speaking on this subject, suddenly a party cadre, with a demonetised Rs 1,000 note in his hand ran to the campaign vehicle shouting that voters should also make Chief Minister Edappadi K Palaniswami valueless. Udhayanidhi plucked the note from the cadre’s hand showed it to the public and then put it into his pocket.
Cadres of the Congress, IUML, CPI, CPM, VCK and Manithaneya Makkal Katchi joined in the campaign.
Earlier, campaigning for Vellore DMK candidate and sitting MLA P Karthikeyan, Udhayanidhi called on voters to throw out the AIADMK government which along with the BJP-led Union government had taken away the rights of the state people. Stating that neither Karunanidhi nor Jayalalithaa allowed NEET, this was allowed by Palaniswami government due to which many students committed suicide.
While the Chief Minister was now stating that NEET would be stopped in the state, the Union government was planning a similar test for nursing courses too.
Lambasting the Centre, he said it was refusing to give the state the Rs 15,000 crore it owed while Modi had purchased new planes for his travel.
