Coimbatore: DMK President M K Stalin's son Udhayanidhi Tuesday hit out at the BJP and Prime Minister Narendra Modi, saying that the Centre failed to implement people-friendly policies in its five year rule.
Seeking votes for the alliance party candidate CPI(M) P R Natarajan here, the actor-producer said people were very "angry with (Narendra) Modi due to demonetisation".
"They (people) will teach him (Modi) a good lesson on April 18 (election date). Five years ago, BJP announced slew of initiatives for the people. Did he (Modi) implement them", he said.
Claiming there was an anti-Modi wave wherever he went for campaigning, Udhayanidhi criticised Chief Minister K Palaniswami and Deputy Chief Minister O Panneerselvam for supporting the BJP.
"He (Palaniswami) has been saying that he has done many things for the welfare of people. But what he has done is that he has been holding the chief minister's post for the last two years", he said.
Referring to the DMK manifesto, Udhayanidhi claimed it has covered all the issues faced by the people,including NEET.
The DMK has promised to strive for doing away with the National Entrance cum Eligibility Test in its election mainfesto.
The DMK, which is leading the opposition Secular Progressive Alliance, is contesting 20 seats in the state, allotting the remaining 19 to its allies, including Congress.
The state goes to the polls in a single phase on April 18....
