Clarion call to form a grand alliance to oust BJP and AIADMK in Tamil Nadu

Covai Post Network

Various opposition parties have called for a grand alliance both at National and State level to oust the “communal Government
led by BJP and the Corrupt AIADMK government in Tamil Nadu.”

Addressing at the Indira Gandhi birth Centenary celebrations here late last night, DMK working president and Opposition leader in Tami Nadu Assembly, M K Stalin gave a clarion call to secular parties to join hands to oust the BJP from the Centre and AIADMK from Tamil Nadu.

This platform should be the beginning for such a a coalition, so as to protect the country from communal forces and also save Tamil Nadu from corrupt AIADMK, he said.

Stating that the State’s autonomy was under threat in the BJP rule, he cited the NEET, depriving the rights of Tamil Nadu students and the recent reported review by the State Governor, Stalin said that it was high time the parties joined hands.

Viduthalai Chiruthaigal Katchi President, Thirumavalavan said that the Congress and Left parties should shun their differences and form a grand alliance to save the country from the communal forces.

He particularly asked Left parties to set aside their policy of keeping both Congress and BJP alike at equal distance and join a coalition.

Tamil Nadu Congress Committee President, S Thirunavukkarasu, who presided over the function, said that the economy of the country was in
shambles due to the demonetisation implemented by Modi Government.

BJP leaders Yashwanth Sinha, Subramanian Swamy and Shatrughan Singh had said that this move has led to a loss of Rs.three lakh crore to the exchequer.

The Congress was in a position to win in the coming Gujarat Assembly elections and this would result in change of the government at the Centre in the 2019 Parliament elections, he said.

The day the former Chief Minister, Jayalalithaa had gone into coma, the State government also have gone into coma, he said.

Thanking Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, for bringing all the opposition parties together, due to his “misrule”, CPI senior leader, D Pandian said that all secular parties should come together to save the country.
