Stringent action against those who take law in their hands, warns Minister Senthil Balaji

Chief Minister MK Stalin would take part in a government function at Eachanari near Kinathukadavu on August 24, said minister for excise and electricity V Senthil Balaji.

Speaking to reporters after conducting a review meeting, he said that the government function will be a historic one with the chief minister distributing welfare assistance to over 1.06 lakh beneficiaries at a single function. He will reach Coimbatore on August 23 evening. 

 In addition, the chief minister would inaugurate 226 completed projects and lay the foundation stones for 261 new projects, he said, adding that the chief minister is scheduled to take part in a political meeting at Pollachi in the evening. When asked about the remarks made by the prime minister on abolition of freebies, he pointed out how free power had uplifted the farming community and weavers to a considerable extent. 

On the poster war that is going on between DMK and the BJP cadres in the city, he said that the DMK never erected arches, flex banners and it only pasted posters to welcome their party leaders. “It is the right of the cadre, irrespective of the party, to stick posters whenever their leaders come. A firm end will be brought to this culture of arm-twisting officials,” he said. He further said that the government would take stringent action against those who take law in their hands.
