VILLUPURAM: The Pattali Makkal Katchi (PMK) passed a resolution at the party’s general body meeting, seeking to effect a regime change in the State in the new year.

The meeting, held in Thailaipuram near Tindivanam on Thursday afternoon, was chaired by PMK founder S Ramdoss and attended by thousands of partymen at the State, district and union-levels.

Ramdoss, who released a pamphlet on the achievements and goals of the party’s chief ministerial candidate, Anbumani Ramadoss, said the parties which were in rule in the State for the past 50 years were like ‘venomous snakes killing the Tamil people.”

Regarding potential poll alliances, he said the party already had an alliance with the people and the media and that other political parties would ally with the PMK.

Speaking at the meeting, Anbumani alleged the State government didn’t act when lakhs of people suffered losses in the recent heavy rains and floods and that the officials kept waiting for the Chief Minister’s order.

He further said the ruling party and the DMK were falling out of favour with the people across the state.

Taking a dig at DMDK leader Vijayakant, Anbumani said the actor-turned-politician was busy spitting at people wherever he went.

In its resolution titled “New Tamil Nadu in New Year”, the Pattali Makkal Katchi slammed the State government for ‘failing’ to take action to secure the release of the Tamil people jailed in Andhra Pradesh on red sanders smuggling charges.

The party cadre resolved to work hard to make Anbumani the Chief Minister so that he would make the State alcohol-free.
