Desiya Mupokku Dravidar Kazhagam (DMDK) leader Vijayakant on Sunday sought votes to make Narendra Modi the Prime Minister for corruption-free governance in the Parliamentary elections and exhorted the electorate to vote for him and the DMDK in the 2016 elections to the Tamil Nadu Legislative Assembly.

Canvassing for the NDA candidate for over 20 minutes, Mr. Vijaykant avoided mentioning the Pattali Makkal Katchi (PMK) and names of its candidates, PMK’s State president G.K. Mani in Krishnagiri as well as Anbumani Ramadoss in Dharmapuri. He charged that both the DMK and the AIADMK governments were anti-people and said that he hated politics based on caste and communal lines.

He said that the water from Rs 1928.80-crore Hogenakkal Drinking Water and Fluorosis Mitigation scheme was yet to reach many areas in both the districts and dubbed the claims of the State government as false. While winding up his speech in Santhaipettai in Dharmapuri, Mr. Vijayakanth said he would come again for introducing and campaigning for the nominees of the BJP-led alliance.
