Stalin is always thinking about me, even in dream: EPS

Hitting out at M K Stalin, Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Edappadi K Palaniswami today said the Leader of Opposition and DMK president is always thinking about him. Speaking at an event in Salem, he said, "Even when he is sleeping, he thinks only about me. He keeps planning something or the other to remove me from Chief Minister post."

EPS added: "But with the support of people all his strategies have been overcome and the Amma government is doing good things for the welfare of people." At Salem, Palaniswami distributed welfare assistance to beneficiares. He was accompanied by Ministers and top officials. On Friday night, reacting to the Union interim budget, the CM said it is good and would help improve the livelihood of the poor and common people.

"I congratulate Piysh Goyal. The budget has met the expectations of the farming sector, middle class and the housing and construction industry," he said. Welcoming the government's vision for the next decade, the CM also lauded the assured income support to the small and marginal farmers under the Pradhan Mantri Kisan Samman Nidhi.

Meanwhile, Stalin said the interim Budget presented by the interim Finance Minister Piyush Goyal on Friday will end up as a bad dream for Prime Minister Narendra Modi, as it was only an attempt to lure voters, and was rather an election manifesto.
