The byelection results of the Vikravandi and Nanguneri Assembly constituencies have revealed that the people of Tamil Nadu have reposed their faith in the ruling All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK), party coordinator and Deputy Chief Minister O. Panneerselvam said.

“The people have shown that they are with only us. The victory is because of the AIADMK government’s achievements,” he told reporters here on Thursday.

When asked as to what change had taken place in the State politics after the Parliamentary elections, he said that after the general election to 38 Lok Sabha seats, in the poll to Vellore Lok Sabha seat the people had favoured the AIADMK and the DMK in three Assembly constituencies (within Vellore LS constituency) each. “Since then, the people have brought a change in the State. They have given the right to rule Tamil Nadu only to the AIADMK,” Mr. Panneerselvam said.

He assured that the local body elections in the State that could not be conducted for the last two years would be completed by the end of December.
