In an effort to revive DMK, the former Deputy Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu MK Stalin apologized for the mistakes that had happened during the DMK rule, and termed it “unintentional”.
“Some of the ministers in our party could have misused their powers and did mistakes in the past. We apologize for that and assure that this will not be repeated again,” he said during his campaigns.
Stalin, who had been touring the state for his Namakku Namae campaign was in Coimbatore on Friday to interact with a variety of people ranging from industrialists; college and school students and general public. He started the campaign with a walking around the Coimbatore race course and was freely interacting and taking selfies with people.
Most of the people who approached for a handshake, autograph or a pic, were readily accepted by Stalin. While Stalin claimed that the tour is to meet with the public, get their suggestions and listen to their queries, most of the opposition parties portrayed the tour as a political stunt.
Stalin nevertheless admitted that there were mistakes that the ruling party had made then and added that he would ensure that there was no repeat. He met people near Singanallur; Ganapathy; Saravanampatti; Saibaba colony; RS Puram; Big Bazaar Street and Kurichi.
Talking about the impact of the tour, Stalin said that there is an anti-incumbency wave in the State and it is clearly visible in his tour.
Meanwhile, Stalin also visited the Geedee Car Museum near Avinashi Road where he was taken around by G.D.Naidu’s son, G.D.Gopal. “He (Stalin) said that the museum was wonderful and he had missed it so long,” G.D.Gopal told Covai Post after the visit.
Stalin also had lunch with school children of a private school and previously garlanded the statue of N.G.Ramaswamy near Singanallur Junction.
