Chennai: DMK president and Leader of Opposition M K Stalin wound up his whirlwind poll campaign in his Kolathur constituency, asking voters to give him an opportunity to execute his plans for the State.

As he toured the constituency by walk, a troupe of drummers led the way. Crackers were burst and the election theme song blared in the background: “Stalin is coming, he is going to usher in a new dawn- that is the people’s mandate”.

“I am the one who comes to you immediately in case of storm or rains or any other damage,” Stalin, the DMK’s Chief Ministerial candidate, told a gathering.

“I have come here twice a week. Now, I have to travel around Tamilnadu so I cannot come often. You have understood that too. Just like you taught the BJP a lesson in the parliamentary elections, you must teach them a lesson in this assembly election as well.”

Like in other constituencies, the DMK president shook hands and took selfies with the people on the streets, before boarding his campaign vehicle sharp at 7 pm Sunday. Earlier in the day, the DMK chief campaigned for his son Udhayanidhi Stalin in Chepauk, where he responded to the ruling AIADMK’s newspaper advertisement campaign.
