Sasikala’s proxy govt in TN, people should join DMK’s protest: Stalin

DMK working president MK Stalin on Monday upped the ante against Tamil Nadu’s new chief minister Edappadi Palaniswami.

He threatened to move a no-confidence motion against Assembly speaker P Dhanapal while describing Palaniswami government as a “proxy” of the convicted AIADMK general secretary VK Sasikala.

Stalin on Monday called all to join the party’s hunger protests on February 22 and added that the party would soon bring a no-confidence motion against the Tamil Nadu Assembly Speaker.

Stalin also said appointment to meet President Pranab Mukherjee has been sought to brief him about the happenings in Tamil Nadu.

He accused the state police of focusing on protection to the ruling party MLAs and suppressing the Opposition instead of concentrating on maintenance of law and order.

Raising his doubts over the death of former Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa, the leader of the opposition said, “There was no official announcement of Jayalalithaa’s death, for Annadurai and MGR there were statements but not her; its confusing.”
