Chief Minister Edappadi K Palaniswami on Friday accused opposition parties, particularly DMK and its Working President M.K. Stalin of spreading false information about the death of a software professional in the city recently.

“Raghupathy’s death was very unfortunate and, the opposition parties are politicising it. The CCTV footage clearly showed the exact cause of his death,” the Chief Minister told reporters at the airport here.

“Stalin is unable to digest the success of MGR centenary celebrations across the State, which has been welcomed by all sections of the people. That is the reason why he is trying to blame the AIADMK for erecting cut outs. People are aware how the public money was looted for the Tamil Chemmozhi Conference (Tamil conference) during DMK regime in the city and the way pandals and banners were erected. The Government’s version has already been submitted in the court,” he said.

Asked about RK Nagar by-elections, Palaniswami said the constituency was represented by ‘Amma’ (Jayalalithaa). It is our citadel and our candidate Madhusudanan will win by a huge margin, the Chief Minister said.

When asked whether the people will accept him campaigning for ‘Two Leaves’ symbol, as he had canvased for ‘Hat’ some six months ago, Palaniswami said that Two Leaves symbol was the victory symbol of MGR and Jayalalithaa, who lived for people.

The Chief Minister said he would campaign in RK Nagar on December 6.
