DMK boycotts, says will be back in Assembly as ruling party

Durai Murugan

Chennai: The principal opposition DMK’s general secretary Durai Murugan today said that the party will win in the upcoming election and will return to the Assembly only after DMK president M K Stalin becomes the Chief Minister. The DMK today boycotted the interim-budget.

Speaking to mediapersons outside the Assembly, Durai Murugan said, “AIADMK government has pushed back Tamilnadu’s development by 50 years. Things will get back on track after DMK comes to power. During DMK regime the debt of the State was only Rs one lakh crore, but now it has increased to Rs 5.7 lakh crore.”

DMK legislators staged a walkout after Durai Murugan was denied permission by Speaker P Dhanapal to speak ahead of the budget presentation.
