CUDDALORE: DMK leader M K Stalin launched a veiled attack on the PMK during his ‘Namakku Naamey’ campaign here on Sunday night.
Talking among the people here he said, “The title ‘Namakku Naamey’ for my campaign was suggested by party chief Karunanidhi. There has been a good response for this campaign. Many political parties are upset due to this.”
Taking a jibe at PMK’s chief ministerial candidate Anbumani Ramadoss, who has launched the ‘First Signature’ campaign, Stalin said, “The person who wanted to put the ‘First Signature’ after becoming the chief minister has lost all hope.” Stalin arrived at Cuddalore around 11.30 pm after visiting several places in the district and reached Sathyagnana Sabha, established by Vallalar Ramalinga Adigal in Vadalur.
Addressing a gathering there, Stalin said, “Vallalar strived for social harmony. He wanted the people not to be divided on caste and religion lines. In this backdrop, the DMK government, in the past, had established ‘Samathuvapuram’, where people of different castes could live together peacefully. Vallalar was concerned about the environment. The DMK took up the cause and planted 92 lakh saplings across the State to mark Karunanidhi’s 92nd birthday.”
