DMK president M K Stalin thanked the people of Tamilnadu for giving his party a decisive mandate and said that he would cherish it as a “certificate of appreciation” from the people for their hard work in the last 50 years.
“I wholeheartedly thank the heart of every person in Tamilnadu who has directed DMK to govern the state for the sixth time. People of Tamilnadu have given their overwhelming support to the DMK led alliance, realizing that Tamilnadu and its people would do well if the state is handed over to DMK,” said Stalin in a statement issued late on Sunday.
Reiterating the party’s vain attempt to return to power in 2016 during Karunanidhi’s time, Stalin said that they had strived every day since then to achieve it and the resounding victory was an acknowledgement for that hard work.
“I will cherish this as the certificate of appreciation of the people for the hard work done as a party and regime in the last 50 years. How many tests, worries, blames and accusations? My sincere thanks to the people for brushing aside the barbs fired at us,” Stalin said.
