DMK to lead delegation to meet PM on Cauvery issue: Stalin

DMK treasurer and the Leader of the Opposition in Tamil Nadu Assembly M K Stalin said on Friday that if the State government fails to convene an all-party meet on Cauvery within two days, then the DMK will lead an all-party delegation to meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi seeking justice to Tamil Nadu.

The DMK treasurer said a meeting of all political parties will only be appropriate if it was called by the ruling party. “We waited patiently for it. However, they (AIADMK) did not take such a step.”

Addressing a hunger strike demonstration held by his party in Thanjavur against the Centre on Cauvery issue, Stalin said “after seeing today’s fast, if the government decides to call for an all party meeting, we will fully cooperate and there is no doubt.”

But the AIADMK regime was averse to the idea, he charged and demanded that the ruling party MPs who were refused audience by Modi must resign.

Hundreds of DMK cadres led by the party treasurer Stalin participated in the fast protesting the Centre’s “betrayal” of Tamil Nadu in the issue of forming the CMB.
