Two days ago, M.K.Stalin instructed the party cadres not to violate the social distancing and lockdown norms to celebrate the victory and requested them to stay home. Despite the announcement, some cadres had gathered at the Arivalayam to celebrate the victory.
Around five in the evening, Stalin in his statement addressing the state said “ I offer my heartfelt gratitude to the people of Tamilnadu. By choosing us, they have taken us beyond every hardship, slander, and obloquy we endured. I consider it a recognition earned through fifty years of hard work. I will keep working for you.” He went on to thank the party cadres and the allies and said a press conference will be held tomorrow as a complete lockdown is in place today.
