High voter turnout reflection of anger against DMK govt: Jaya
Chennai: AIADMK chief Jayalalithaa Thursday
claimed the high voter turnout for the Assembly polls in Tamil Nadu was a reflection of people`s "anger" against the ruling
DMK and their resolve to oust the Karunanidhi-led government.
"People have come out in large numbers in a silent
revolution to show their anger and to make sure the DMK
government goes," Jayalalithaa told reporters here.
The Chief Electoral Officer yesterday had said the polling
percentage in Tamil Nadu was between 75 and 80 per cent.
Jayalalithaa lauded the Election Commission for conducting
the polls in a "safe and secure" environment.
"The polling went off peacefully except for minor incidents
here and there. So we must all complement the EC for providing
a safe and secure environment for voting," she said.
