In his speech, he said he would campaign for the DMK.

Subsequently, Nanjil Sampath’s campaign tour schedule has been published in Murasoli, DMK mouthpiece.According to the report, he will be on campaign tour from March 26 to April 16 till the last date of campaign in the state, covering Cuddalore, Villupuram, Kallakuruchi, Perambalur, Namakkal and Chennai South and the Assembly constituencies where by-polls would be held. 

Interestingly, he has avoided the Erode parliament constituency, where the MDMK is contesting in the DMK-led alliance.As for Peter Alphonse, he will campaign for the DMK candidates from March 26 to April 10, covering Thoothukudi, Tenkasi, Tirunelveli, Thanjavur, Mayiladuthurai, Cuddalore, Chennai North, Chennai South, Kancheepuram, and Vellore.  Interestingly, despite being a Congressman, he has tactically avoided the parliamentary constituencies where the Congress is in the fray.
