Only God knows the fate of Palaniswami govt: Pon Radhakrishnan

Expressing doubts whether the newly sworn-in Edappadi K Palaniswami-led government in Tamil Nadu would continue after Saturday’s floor test, Union Minister Pon Radhakrishnan today said “only God knows its fate.”

“Will Palaniswami-led government continue to remain in power till tomorrow? Only God knows its fate,” Radhakrishnan said.

Radhakrishnan said the Tamils had to hang their heads in shame following the unprecedented political situation in the State. The Governor, after patient reckoning, had taken a firm decision to solve the political crisis, he added.

“The State can march on the path of development only when a ‘Kazhagam-free Tamil Nadu’ is created,” he said.

On DMK working president M K Stalin’s apprehension of horse-trading, the senior BJP leader said the worried Opposition leader might have aired this opinion out of fear of his own MLAs switching camps.
