Stalin harps on DMK’s performance in LS polls
By Thehindu 28-Jul-2019
Addressing a gathering of traders, residents and party cadre at Latheri in the K.V. Kuppam Assembly segment, Mr. Stalin said his political rivals could not succeed in denying victory for the DMK in the April 18 Lok Sabha election. “Their plans and strategies did not work, and were thwarted by the people of Tamil Nadu, who sent 38 MPs of the DMK-led front to Parliament,” he said.
He alleged that the Central government conducted raids to tarnish the DMK’s image and divert the attention of the voters. Despite all its efforts, DMK members won the election with huge margins, ranging from 3 lakh to 5 lakh votes, he said.
Mr. Stalin addressed voters at Senji, Panamadangi, Kizhalathur, P.K. Puram, Melmoil and Vaduganthangal in K.V. Kuppam; and Baratharami, Chittoor Gate and Kondasamudram in Gudiyatham, where huge crowds of party cadre greeted him on his arrival. “Kathir Anand will be adding strength to the strong contingent [of MPs] who are already raising several issues in Parliament,” he said. “By casting their vote for Mr. Anand, the people of Vellore can expect welfare measures as had been implemented by DMK governments in the past,” he said.
Mr. Stalin once again raised the question that was hotly debated in the Assembly: “Is 9 or 13 the bigger number?” referring to the number of seats won by the AIADMK and the DMK respectively in the byelections to 22 Assembly constituencies.
