“We will wait for the Centre to withdraw this Act. If they refuse to do that, we will announce the next plan…” Stalin said.

Taking a jibe at the deployment of massive police force at the venue, Stalin said they should thank police personnel for joining the rally and the ruling AIADMK government for such publicity, referring to a petition moved in Madras HC on Sunday seeking an order to prevent the rally.
