DMK’s working president Stalin has said that the Edapadi Palaniswami-led regime would fall ‘on its own weight’ and others don’t need to do anything in this regard. Stalin was responding to Tamil Nadu chief-minister Edapadi Palaniswami who accused Stalin of feeling desperate out of his failure in toppling the Govt.
Stalin was speaking to newsmen at Chennai Airport yesterday when he was asked to react to the chief-minister’s allegation that he was speaking out of desperation after ‘failing’ to topple the AIADMK regime. “I never attempted to topple the Govt. which is sure to fall very soon under its own weight as MLAs have been switching sides at a rapid pace,” Stalin remarked.
He also doubted whether the two factions of the AIADMK would unite as they had very differing views on important issues including setting up of AIIMS branch in the State.
He also condemned BJP’s national president Amit Shan’s controversial remarks against Mahatma Gandhi, the ‘Father of the Nation’. “His remarks were out of context and agonizing,” Stalin said.
Commenting on another issue, he appealed to the ruling faction of the AIADMK to ensure that no adulteration takes place in manufacturing milk.
