CM M K Stalin to Attend INDIA Coalition Conclave in Delhi Ahead of Election Results

Chennai: Chief Minister M K Stalin has finally decided to attend the conclave of the INDIA coalition at New Delhi on June 1 as the meeting of most of the top leaders of the opposition bloc in the country is likely to take some key decisions like its Prime Ministerial candidate in the event of the BJP biting the dust in the Lok Sabha elections, whose results would be known on June 4.

Sources said that though Stalin was initially not very keen on attending the June 1 meeting in view of his party’s preparations for the conclusion of the centenary celebrations of M Karunanidhi, which falls on June 4, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi prevailed over him.

Since the DMK expects to play a major role in the formation of the government, Stalin and also the other leaders of the INDIA coalition feel that the presence of the leader of the major party in South India was imperative for them to sort out many issues that would help them quickly move forward once the results were in their favour on June 4.

Also the DMK had planned to hold the valedictory of the Karunanidhi centenary celebrations only after the announcement of the election results as the Model Code of Conduct would be in force on June 3, the birth anniversary, which also fell just a day ahead of the results.

With a plan to make the valedictory a national event by ensuring the participation of top leaders of other major parties, the DMK would like to wait for the results.
