No opposition leader except Stalin backs Rahul for PM: Palaniswami
DMK president Stalin is the only leader who endorsed Congress president Rahul Gandhi as the Prime Ministerial candidate, but no other opposition party is ready to accept it, Chief Minister Edappadi K. Palaniswami said here on Friday.
Campaigning at different parts of Salem for candidates Anbumani Ramadoss-nominee of Dharmapuri constituency , K.R.S.Saravanan for the Salem constituency and P. Kalliappan for Namakkal constituency, he said Mr. Stalin, during his campaign speeches, never talked about what the DMK had done while in power and was levelling false allegations against him.
Criticising the Congress president, he said that while Tamil Nadu had won a favourable judgment in the Cauvery issue, Mr. Gandhi campaigned in Karnataka saying Mekadatu dam would be built.
Mr. Palaniswami said, “If the dam is built across Cauvery river, it would affect Tamil Nadu severely.”
