Vijayakant claims that MLAs belonging to the ruling party are involved in land grabbing
He says he has not joined hands with AIADMK to share power or vie for party post
‘MGR is my guru and I am happy to have an alliance with a party founded by him'
Star campaigner: DMDK founder Vijayakant campaigning for AIADMK alliance candidates in Namakkal district on Thursday.
Namakkal: DMDK founder Vijayakant stated that he would give fitting reply to Chief Minister M. Karunanidhi during his campaign from Friday.
He was campaigning for his party's candidate for Senthamangalam (ST) Assembly constituency R. Shanthi on Thursday.
”I will listen to what he (CM) says in Coimbatore and Erode today (Thursday) and counter his speeches throughout my campaign,” Mr. Vijayakant added.
“You have to use the mighty weapon (vote) carefully and sensibly to remove evil forces from power,” he said.
“You have been given a chance for this purpose on April 13 and you should unseat the DMK from power and help the AIADMK alliance win,” he said.
He stated that he was not joining hands with the AIADMK to share power or vie for the post of Deputy Chief Minister, but to form good government that would work for the welfare of the people.
“MGR is my guru and I am happy to have an alliance with a party founded by him,” he added.
He claimed that MLAs belonging to the ruling party were involved in land grabbing by cheating people belonging to the Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes and Adi Dravida communities in places such as Gangaivali and Senthamangalam in Namakkal district.
At Pudanchandhai, when Mr. Vijaykanth was half way through his campaign, a cadre asked him why he was wearing dark glasses while campaigning.
“It is to beat the heat,” he said with a smile and removed them. After canvassing for AIADMK's Rasipuram (SC) candidate P. Dhanapal, he travelled to Vaiappamalai, Mallasamudram and Tiruchengode town in Tiruchengode Assembly constituency where he campaigned for his party candidate R. Sampath Kumar before campaigning for AIADMK's Kumarapalayam candidate Thangamani at Pallipalayam.
