I’ll quit politics if I don’t prove corruption charges against TN Min, says Stalin
DMK Chairman MK Stalin vowed on Saturday to leave politics if he did not prove corruption charges against Tamil Nadu Municipal Administration Minister SP Velumani.
Responding to Velumani’s challenge to prove the corruption charges against him or to resign from politics, Stalin said: “I am ready to leave politics. Are you (Velumani) ready? “The head of DMK was addressing a village gram sabha meeting at Devarayapuram in the Thondamuthur constituency, represented by the minister.
Referring to the memorandum presented by the DMK to the governor last month listing the corruption charges against the CM and his colleagues, Velumani had said that he would resign if the charges were proven and was seeking to know whether Stalin was ready to leave politics if he could not do it.
“We will not only prove the charges against the minister, but we will also take him to court and punish him for his corrupt acts …” Stalin said.
Stalin promised to order an investigation into the “mysterious death” of the late Prime Minister J Jayalalithaa, as the government-set up judicial commission has not submitted its report even after three years, immediately after taking power.
The DMK leader also mocked AIADMK for announcing K Palaniswami as the top ministerial candidate, as his alliance partner BJP had not yet endorsed him.
Although the state government has banned gram sabha gatherings, the party was holding popular gram sabha gatherings and praised the turnout in large numbers as they had given DMK a big mandate in the last Lok Sabha and local body elections. .
