We experienced made the decision to maintain around 10,600 gram sabhas throughout Tamil Nadu. The folks have participated enthusiastically, especially girls.

What are the challenges that will impression the elections?
Already, the folks are heading by means of challenging moments because of the coronavirus about the previous 10 months. Many have shed their livelihoods, unemployment is at its peak, cost inflation is ascending every working day. The prices of diesel and petrol is escalating just about every working day. The Centre and the point out are unable to curtail the cost increase. Notably, farmers— they are the backbone of this state. The Centre is not in a position to fulfill their needs. The point out govt right here [Tamil Nadu] has adopted a submissive stance, and absent on to assistance the Centre. Just now, in the birthplace of Thalaivar Kalaignar in Thirukuvalai, a comrade has died by suicide because of the psychological agony brought on by crop harm. This is the circumstance of the individuals. They are determined to cause a modify of govt.
How do you perspective the choice by the Centre to hold the farm regulations in abeyance for 18 months?
I feel it is an endeavor to save face. It’s a tactic to bring them[farm laws] back again once again. The farmers are being provided so lots of incentives but it all appears diversionary. They have met so several times but a consensus has not been arrived at. So, there is tiny scope for rely on in the government now.
What about the BJP’s presence on the floor in Tamil Nadu. Will the men and women take the BJP?
There is no way they will take the BJP. At any price, the individuals want the point out to be secular. And Thiruvalluvar [Tamil philosopher-poet] has been employed to propagate their agenda—the BJP and the RSS have offered him a saffron shade. This is how it is progressing in Tamil Nadu. Not just that — in the name of bringing progress to Tamil Nadu, there is an attempt to impose Hindi and Sanskrit and wipe out Tamil from the condition. So, below no circumstance will be the persons of Tamil Nadu accept the BJP.

Enable there be no doubt about it. We[DMK and Congress] were together for the Parliamentary polls, together for the area human body polls, and we will be alongside one another for the forthcoming Assembly polls As far as Puducherry is involved, the DMK comrades come to feel it essential to go to the polls on your own the Management will take the ideal final decision at the proper time.

That is their belief. I do not think I have to specific my viewpoint on it.
Sasikala is acquiring unveiled. Will there be a political impression because of this growth?
That’s an internal matter of the social gathering [ADMK]. I should not interfere in that. What ever be the outcome, proper now she is in clinic. My desire is that she retains her well being and receives discharged from the healthcare facility. That is my emotion.
You have been regularly talking about the probe into Jayalalithaa’s dying. What is your desire in the scenario?
Of course, it is been a few decades due to the fact the Arumugamsamy Fee has been set up. The enquiry into this was sought by Deputy Main Minister Panneerselvam, not the DMK. They [AIADMK] have her picture in their shirt pockets, and say it’s her federal government they are managing, they are also going to inaugurate her memorial on January 27, but they will not get to the bottom of her mysterious dying. it is not the demise of a typical person. It is the dying of the main minister of the point out.
MGR died when he was serving as the CM, Annadurai died when he was the CM. Back again then, particulars of their illness and the remedy given to them had been built out there to the general public. But there has been no aspects readily available on Jayalalithaa’s loss of life. DMK needs to convey out the fact. If DMK will come to electric power, we will purse a probe into Jaya’d dying.
