Stalin lashes out at Chennai Mayor too for ‘stalled development’
The busy MC Road at Royapuram wore a festive look on Thursday evening as a sizeable crowd waited for DMK treasurer M.K. Stalin to begin his campaign for the day. As he emerged from his campaign van in a blue shirt rolled up to his sleeves, the DMK and alliance party cadre gave him a rousing welcome. At Suzhal Methai on MC Road, a hub for retail and wholesale clothes, Mr. Stalin termed AIADMK-government led by Jayalalithaa corrupt and non-functional as several schemes announced under Rule 110 of the Assembly remained only on paper. “She is not approachable also. She does not meet people or care for their welfare while in power,” he charged.
Engaging the crowd through an interactive approach, he detailed the list of achievements when he and M. Subramaniam were Chennai Mayors during 1996-2001 and 2006-11 respectively. “Whether we are in power or not, we will be with the people,” he said.
