“The election will come in another four months.” I need to visit all 234 constituencies. I could start my campaign after a few days, but before 15 days, DMK MP Kanimozhi started his campaign in this constituency and made many false claims against our government. To prove their allegations false and give them a befitting reply, several AIADMK officials and activists requested me to start an election campaign from here. Edapadi is the stronghold of AIADMK. From 1977, after Puratchithalaivar MGR left DMK and started his own party, DMK never won in this constituency. Being the MLA of this constituency, I have been elected as the Chief Minister. Your affection will always be with us. Not only Kanimozhi, even though all DMK leaders campaign, they have improved. Palanisamy said that in the assembly elections, the AIADMK-led coalition would gain a majority and retain power.
