Leader of Opposition in the Tamil Nadu Assembly M K Stalin on Saturday alleged the present ruling AIADMK government has “lost its majority” after its 21 of MLAs withdrew their support. He said, on contrary, the DMK-led opposition has a strength of 98 in the House.

While addressing a public rally, Stalin said, “With the DMK and its allies having a strength 98 MLAs in the Assembly and the ruling party’s 21 dissenting legislators, the AIADMK government, led by K Palaniswami, has lost its majority in the House,” he told a public meeting here last night.

Stalin asserted that all opposition parties like Congress, Indian Union Muslim League (IUML) and DMK would “point out this arithmetic” to Governor Ch Vidyasagar Rao.

The opposition parties have sought an appointment with the governor to apprise him of the “prevailing issues” in the state.

Stalin warned of a “people’s struggle” to unseat the AIADMK government, if no action was taken.

“This is not for grabbing power, but to safeguard the self-respect of the people of Tamil Nadu,” he said.
