SALEM: Admitting to his partymen’s involvement in corrupt activities in the past, DMK treasurer MK Stalin on Monday assured that he would mend their ways.

Addressing lorry transport and allied industry owners in Sankagiri, as part of the third phase of Namakku Naame Vidiyal Meetppu Payanam, which began here, he said, “You might have had bad experiences with DMK men in the past. Party functionaries, including me, would have inadvertently supported their excesses. But when the DMK is back in power, there will be a totally honest, transparent government, free of corruption, commission and collection. Henceforth in Tamil Nadu, you will not have to go to politicians to get things done, rather they will come to your doorstep. The beginning has been made with the Namakku Naame Vidiyal Meetuppu tour.”

Stalin indicated that the party would go for a major revamp to shed its image of a muscle powered, high handed and corrupt force.

As far as the lorry transport industry was concerned, the demands were almost the same in Namakkal and Sankagiri pertaining to reduction of State cess on diesel, which had risen from 2 per cent to 6 per cent. Stalin promised to fulfil their demands.
