Tamil Nadu Chief Minister MK Stalin, who has been micromanaging the campaign, hit the roads on Saturday to campaign for Congress candidate EVKS Elangovan in the upcoming Erode East Assembly by-poll.
The Chief Minister said, “Erode is the foundation of our party. Father Elangovan has come to fulfill his son’s duty. Karunanidhi’s son has come to seek votes for EVK Sampath’s son.” Stalin further added that his ultimate aim is to ban NEET in Tamil Nadu.
The campaigning for the Erode East by-poll is set to come to an end on today’s evening. Leader of the Opposition Edappadi K Palaniswami (EPS) also gave a last-minute push on Friday to his candidate’s fortunes.
Earlier, deposed AIADMK leader O Panneerselvam condemned the ruling government of malpractices in the Erode East by-poll campaign.
