The Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam alone has the courage to seek a fresh mandate from the people in the forthcoming Assembly elections to continue to rule Tamil Nadu on the strength of its achievements and good governance, according to the DMK president and Chief Minister M. Karunanidhi.

Addressing an election meeting canvassing votes for the DMK-led alliance candidates Mr. Karunanidhi said “If you vote for the AIADMK front, it means that you are rejecting all the good schemes implemented by the DMK government.” Mr. Karunanidhi alleged that “some people” are working hard to prevent the victory of the DMK front for fear that if the front retained power in the coming elections others can never aspire to come to power.
