COIMBATORE: Chief Minister MK Stalin said the report submitted by Justice (retd) A Arumughaswamy’s Commission of Inquiry on the death of former chief minister J Jayalalithaa will soon be tabled before the Assembly.

“There are some issues revealed in the report, which I will not say now. It will be tabled before the Assembly and action will be taken in a transparent manner,” he said while speaking at the marriage function of former minister Pongalur N Palaniswamy’s granddaughter with the son of Bargur MLA D Mathiazhagan in Coimbatore.

Recalling that O Panneerselvam sat before the memorial of Jayalalithaa and sought inquiry, while raising suspicion on her death, following a rift within the party, Stalin said the then chief minister Edappadi K Palaniswami announced the forming of the commission of inquiry just for namesake and to convince OPS.

“During polls, we promised a fair probe and action based on the commission’s inquiry report, if DMK comes to power. A few days ago, the report was submitted by Justice Arumughaswamy. It will be tabled in the Assembly along with the report of Justice Aruna Jagadeesan Commission of Inquiry on the 2018 Thoothukudi police firing incident,” he said.

Taking a further dig at Palaniswami for saying that the DMK has failed on its poll promises, CM Stalin said 70 per cent of its election promises were fulfilled and remaining will also be implemented soon.

“People are hopeful that their grievances will be fulfilled. Also, 70 per cent of the petitions received under ‘Ungal Thogudhiyil Stalin’ commenced during the election campaign, have now been resolved,” he said.

Chief Minister Stalin said the MLAs in 234 constituencies were asked to inform on the long pending issues in their constituencies to the Chief Minister’s office to be resolved soon. “Even if there is an issue in Edappadi constituency, it will be resolved. This is the Dravidian model of government. Even problems that were pending for 10 years were resolved in 10 days,” he said.

Further, CM Stalin said that on September 5, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal is coming to Tamil Nadu to launch smart classes in corporation schools. On the same day, the scheme to provide Rs 1,000 per month to girl students of government school joining colleges will be launched. Also, Rs 1,000 cash assistance to women heads of family will be rolled out, once the financial situation of the government improves,” he added.
