AIADMK-led alliance will continue in future: EPS

Chief Minister and AIADMK joint coordinator Edappadi K Palaniswami has said the AIADMK-led alliance will emerge victorious in the Lok Sabha polls and Assembly by-elections which were held yesterday.

He said chances were very high that the alliance led by AIADMK would continue in coming elections in the state. Addressing mediapersons in Salem, Palaniswami said, “There was more voters turnout this time as people wanted this government to continue.The present AIADMK alliance is likely to continue in the future as well.”

Palaniswami said State ministers could not pass any individual orders now, as all administrative matters were under the EC's purview until the results were declared on May 23. The CM said as the state was in election mode, everything was under the control of the Election Commission. "I need to discuss this issue with senior ministers and senior officials," he said, when asked about the government's response to the damages caused by the sudden rains and thunderstorms in different places in the state.
