A day after he was elected as PMK’s president, Anbumani Ramadoss called on Chief Minister M.K. Stalin in the latter’s camp office in Chennai on Sunday.

“It was a courtesy call and I got the Chief Minister's wishes. Politics was not discussed in the meeting,” Dr. Ramadoss told reporters.

He also said he planned to meet senior leaders from other political parties.

Dr. Ramadoss said he would visit every district and village and interact with people on key issues. The PMK would focus on water related issues, water management and implementation of pending water schemes and building of check dams.

He also said global warming and climate change were key issues and more investment should be made in this regard.

PMK 2.0

Mr. Anbumani also had a meeting with members of 34 different units in the party and discussed strategies for PMK 2.0. “To ensure PMK is voted to power in the State in 2026, the focus will be on implementing PMK 2.0 in a phased manner,” he said. He told reporters post the meeting that the party’s approach would also be to focus on agriculture-related issues, liquor prohibition, ban on online gaming and narcotics, job opportunities, environment and social issues, among others.

Mr. Anbumani said he had urged Mr. Stalin to urgently organise a meeting under his leadership to discuss ways to abolish drug use and also for implementation of liquor prohibition as per the DMK’s poll manifesto. He claimed that in Tamil Nadu, no party could come to power without alliance in the next 10-15 years.

He was accompanied by the party’s honorary president G.K. Mani and general secretary A.K. Moorthy. He also met Leader of the Opposition and AIADMK co-coordinator Edappadi K. Palaniswam
