Thanjavur: TNCC president S Thirunavukkarasar accused both the AIADMK and the BJP of playing a double act and cheating the people, and exhorted the Thanjavur electorate to give a shock treatment to the AIADMK government.
Addressing an election campaign for DMK candidate Dr Anjugam Boopathy in Sivaganga Garden area here today, Thirunavukkarasar pointed out that AIADMK and BJP have formed an alliance in the neighbouring Puducherry while they are contesting against each other in the November 19 elections for three constituencies in Tamil Nadu.
He appealed to the electorate to vote for the DMK candidate in Thanjavur to strengthen the opposition party in the state assembly and ensure good governance in the state. No change will take place in the state if AIADMK wins the elections, he added.
“What the state government needs now is a shock treatment from the Thanjavur electorate,” he said.
Thirunavukkarasar also questioned the rationale behind the introduction of the Rs. 2,000 currency note by the BJP led central government after scrapping Rs. 1,000 currency notes claiming that it is a cleaning move by Prime Minister Narendra Modi to crack down on black money.
Alleging that the governance in Tamil Nadu has now come to a standstill, he said that the government machinery should be geared up. “The Tamil Nadu government is not functioning now. There is only officials’ raj in Tamil Nadu,” he said.
