EPS invites CM for open debate

EPS invites CM for open debate

EC is ineffective  to check violation of poll norms by DMK despite many complaints from various parties, rued AIADMK interim general secretary and former CM Edapadi K Palaniswamy. Campaigning for Erode East bypoll candidate KS Thennarasu on Friday night, he alleged that DMK did not believe voters so that only it confined them in the election depots like cattle. 

As the DMK treat voters in such a way, how can it protect them,  he asked. Confining them in the sheds is like a torture. In no part of the nation, this kind of poll violation could be seen. The medias should expose such things which is tantamount murdering of democracy. He said that the AIADMK rule has done a lot for the welfare of people for the past 10 years. If need be, CM MK Stalin can enter into open debate with him on the achievements of AIADMK rule. 

Let Stalin cite any development scheme enforced by him during the past 21 months in Erode East segment. He appealed to the voters  to vote without fear and alleged that the DMK men threatened the voters that ''they would know for whom voters are voting''. There is no way to know the voting trend. It is a secret. So people can vote according to their wish without fear, he advised.

Situation is worse

The law and order situation is worse in TN. In the DMK rule, photo shoot of CM is alone being held.  he said.
Asserting that the DMK obtained Rs 1.62 lakh cr loan during its 21 month rule, he said CM inaugurated the schemes brought by AIADMK rule only. The power tariff, property tax, water tax etc were hiked steeply under DMK rule. The power tariff would be hiked by 6 percent every year hereafter under the DMK rule. Sales of ganja increased in TN. 

On the other, all welfare schemes of AIADMK rule were stopped and many poll promises of DMK were not yet fulfilled. DMK involved in Rs1.76 lakh crore 2G scam. In fact, in the history of the nation, DMK rule was dissolved for corruption. 

So, DMK has no locus standi to flay AIADMK. Just 32 percent  joined higher education during DMK rule. It rose to 54 percent under AIADMK rule. It alone brought 11 medical colleges in a year and opened over 70 law,  arts and science, polytechnic colleges etc.  So,  people should give a fitting reply to DMK rule in the bypoll, he pleaded.
