DMK leader MK Stalin Monday announced that his second leg of campaign for the upcoming Assembly election will begin on January 29 from Tiruvannamalai.
Addressing reporters outside the house of former DMK president late M Karunanidhi in Gopalapuram, Stalin said he will launch a special initiative ‘Ungal Thoguthiyil Stalin (Stalin in your constituency) through which he will address the public grievances across the 234 constituencies in Tamil Nadu. He added that if DMK comes in power, all these grievances will be addressed within 100 days.
A form will be provided to people and they can submit their issues directly to Stalin who is scheduled to visit all the constituencies within a month. People who won’t be able to appear in person can log into http://www.stalinani.com or dial 9171091710 to submit their complaints.
“A separate department will be set up to address these issues. This will be under my direct supervision. This will be aside from the already existing redressal departments in the governments. This will be my topmost priority. My government will solve these grievances within 100 days. I choose to announce this initiative from here (Kalaignar’s residence) because he did what he said. Following his footsteps, I will do what I say,” Stalin said.
Stalin’s new initiative came after he completed similar campaigns like the ‘Makkal Grama Sabha’ and ‘Ondrinaivom Vaa’ which according to DMK has helped more than one crore people in distress.
The DMK leader further attacked the AIADMK government for not bringing development in the state. Taking a jibe at Chief Minister Edappadi, Stalin said increasing the state’s debt to five lakh crore rupees, infiltrating corruption into all departments, losing the state’s rights to centre, unemployment, law, and order crisis are some of the achievements of the AIADMK government.
“No one is at peace under this government. From farmers to businessmen, from children to old-aged people, everyone is in distress. There is no development in any constituency. In the pandemic, the AIADMK government didn’t provide any help to the poor people unlike us who helped everyone even when we are not in power. Now the AIADMK government is providing 2,500 rupees because of the election,” Stalin added.
