CHENNAI: Pointing out that the people of Tamil Nadu are willing to bring about change of guard at the helm of affairs, DMK working president M K Stalin on Sunday said the party candidate’s victory in the RK Nagar bypoll would set the tone for redemption of the State.

Addressing a marriage function here, he said, “We are going to face by-election on April 12. The victory that will come for the party will be in such a way that it will redeem the state.”
Referring to the huge turnout witnessed at a recent campaign meeting held in RK Nagar, Stalin said it reflected the willingness of the people to bring about change of government soon. “Even if it is not for yourself, you all should take a good decision for the welfare of our young generation,” he appealed.
Regarding the issue of signages coming up in Hindi, he said 1965 (when the DMK launched the spirited anti-Hindi agitation) should not return. “We resisted imposition of Hindi by rendering several sacrifices. Now also, we are in the same mindset. We are not against Hindi, but only opposed to its imposition,” he said.
On other issues, Stalin urged the government to enforce the order of Supreme Court to close down liquor outlets within 500 meters of national and state highways. He appealed to the government to provide alternative employment to those affected.
