Coimbatore : Exuding confidence that DMK will form the government in Tamil Nadu after May 23, the day the Lok Sabha and by-polls results are announced, party president, M K Stalin Sunday said that the first thing the government will do is to order an inquiry into the mysterious death of former chief minister, J Jayalalithaa.
Seeking votes for party candidate Pongalur N Palanisamy in Sulur constituency here, Stalin said that many women belonging to AIADMK were approaching and requesting him to order the inquiry and punish the guilty and put them behind bars.
DMK had taken the cue about the mysterious death of Jayalalithaa from none other than O Paneerselvam, who is now Deputy Chief Minister, he said.
Expressing confidence about the change in the government, he said that with 97 seats, including that of ally, Congress and IUML, DMK was sure to win all the 22 by-poll seats–18 already held and four to be held on May 19-
thus getting 119, one more than the majority, thus showing the minority AIADMK government the door.
He said the people of Tamil Nadu had already sealed the fate of the ‘authoritarian’ rule of Prime Minister, Narendra Modi on April 18, when Lok Sabha Polls were held and similarly voters will give a good mandate in bypolls, leading to the ouster of the AIADMK government.
Coming down heavily on Modi government, Stalin said that it had given false promises like bringing black money, providing two crore jobs per year and all sections of the people had suffered from the demonetisation and GST.
He termed Tamil Nadu government as the puppet of Modi and chief minister K Palanisamy as a slave, who has to be removed for the welfare of the State.
Stalin said the State government had not given a six-feet land to former chief minister, M Karunanidhi, his father, despite requests and he had to tap the door of the court for it.
