DMK working president M.K. Stalin on Tuesday said that the continuation of the AIADMK government would not augur well for Tamil Nadu and its people.
“There is no democracy in the government. In fact, there is no Chief Minister and the administration has stagnated and festering. It is very dangerous and there is a doubt whether there is governance at all,” he said in a statement.
Mr. Stalin alleged Tamil Nadu had become a hub of struggle, and students and women were organising protests calling for the closure of Tasmac liquor shops; farmers also were pressing their demands. “But the State government is not ready to listen to their grievances. The Chief Minister is indifferent to their problem and refuses to meet the farmers,” he alleged.
The DMK leader said normally the Cabinet would meet to discuss public issues, but in Tamil Nadu, ministers were meeting to resolve problems within their party and discuss change of leadership.
Pointing out that Tamil Nadu was facing a slew of issues including drinking water shortage and the NEET imbroglio, he said an attempt was being made to usurp the power of the Backward Classes Commission but the Chief Minister was yet to open his mouth on the issue.
