DMK victory ‘artificial’, AIADMK  leader Panneerselvam

Chennai, Feb 22 (BPNS)

AIADMK Chief coordinator and former Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu, O. Panneerselvam said that the victory of the DMK was artificial.  He said that the elections did not truly reflect the people’s feelings and that if the polls were held in a free fair and just manner, AIADMK would have seen resounding success.

He however said that he and the AIADMK respect the party’s mandate.

OPS thanked those who voted for the party and expressed confidence that the party had faced similar electoral setbacks and subsequently emerged victorious.

In a statement on Tuesday after the election results, OPS said, “ Soon opportunity will arise for the people to express their true feelings and desire in a democratic manner. When such a day comes, the will of the people will prevail and it is certain that AIADMK will bounce back.”

The former Chief Minister called upon the party workers to work tirelessly for the party to emerge victorious in future elections.
