COIMBATORE: Chief Minister MK Stalin on Wednesday hit out at the AIADMK saying that DMK is being targeted by some parties to cover up their intra party tussle over leadership and divert attention from their inefficiency.
“They do not have any locus-standi to criticise DMK as just in the past one year the government has launched a lot of welfare schemes,” he said, while participating in a function in Eachanari near Coimbatore to hand over Rs 589 crore worth assistance to over 1.07 lakh beneficiaries.
The Chief Minister also laid foundation to 748 new projects for Rs 663 crore and commissioned 228 completed projects for Rs 272 crore.
Further, Stalin said that the DMK government does not stop by giving aid to some and avoids others, as it sees everyone as equal and gives countless welfare measures to all. “For those who ask what the DMK has done, I want them to come and ask the people of Tamil Nadu to know for themselves,” he said.
Stating that Tamil Nadu has been marching fast towards progress in all departments, Stalin said that MLA’s were asked to send a list of ten long pending demands in their constituencies to be fulfilled.
“Not only the DMK legislators, but those from alliance parties and from BJP and AIADMK can also send their demands for consideration. This will be a pioneering scheme in the nation,” he said.
MK Stalin arrived in Coimbatore on Tuesday night on a three-day visit to Coimbatore, Pollachi, Tirupur, Gobichettipalayam and Erode. Mayor Kalpana Anandakumar, Minister for Electricity V Senthil Balaji, Coimbatore MP PR Natarajan and K Shanmugasundaram were among those others who spoke.
