DMK patriarch M Karunanidhi launched a full frontal attack on the AIADMK government. Addressing a demonstration meeting held in Chennai on Tuesday, Karunanidhi criticised the State government’s handling of the power derficit scenario and suggested that power outages were behind some crimes in the State.
Karunanidhi also hit out at the government for not taking the views of opposition parties into account. “If a government has to disintegrate on its own, all it needs to do is refuse to listen to the opposition and act haughtily. Then, it will disintegrate without anybody’s help. This demonstration is being held to tell the State government this message,” he said.
He also hit out at the government over the law and order situation. Claiming crimes were on the rise, Karunanidhi alleged that the power cuts were emboldening criminals to commit more crimes. Karunanidhi led the DMK’s demonstration in Chennai, even as other senior party leaders took part in the demonstrations across the State. DMK treasurer MK Stalin took part in the demonstration in Kancheepuram, while general secretary K Anbazhagan led the demonstration in Madhavaram.Arcot N Veerasamy, Central Chennai MP Dayanidhi Maran, MLA J Anbazhagan and actress Kushboo were among those present at Chennai demo.
