EPS accuses DMK of changing principles for alliance
During the Erode By poll Campaign AIADMK interim general secretary Edappadi K Palaniswami said that the party will never compromise on its principles for the sake of alliance parties, unlike the DMK. EPS accused the DMK of changing its principles as its alliances changed and gave priority only to its self-interest. He also said, “For a political party, the alliance may change according to the situation during polls, but its principle should remain permanent. The AIADMK will never compromise on its principles. It shouldn’t be assumed that AIADMK will bend down for the sake of its alliance. We will only work for the welfare of people in Tamil Nadu.” Renewing his attack on DMK over the NEET issue, Palaniswami said despite the DMK and its alliances having 38 MPs, they haven’t taken any efforts to scrap the entrance exam for medical education. EPS said “Former chief minister J Jayalalithaa fought against introducing NEET in Tamil Nadu. But, the DMK leaders are talking as if NEET was brought by the AIADMK. A solution could be found if the issue is raised deeply in the Lok Sabha. The AIADMK MPs voiced the issue on Cauvery water row for 22 days in the Parliament,” he said, adding that a good change may come in the 2024 Parliamentary elections.
