DMK Working President M K Stalin today greeted Chief Minister Edappadi K Palaniswami on his taking over the top post. He also asked him not to “get operated remotely” from Bengaluru, in an apparent reference to AIADMK chief V K Sasikala. Extending his greetings to Palaniswami, Stalin, also the Leader of the Opposition in the Assembly, said he “should not seek consultations from Bengaluru prison,” and see that the oath of office and secrecy he has taken today, according to the Constitution, is not infringed upon.

Palaniswami must not run the government according to the whims and fancies of “power centres here and at Bengaluru,” he said and asked him to work for the people’s welfare.

While referring to Bengaluru, he cited Sasikala being lodged in a Bengaluru jail (undergoing jail term following her conviction in the assets case), and by pointing out “here,” he made a veiled reference to AIADMK deputy general secretary T T V Dinakaran who is also Sasikala’s nephew.

“I urge him to run the government for the welfare and growth of Tamil Nadu people, fully realising the duties and responsibilities of the office of Chief Minister,” Stalin said.
