Stalin asks supporters not to celebrate his b`day
Chennai: DMK Treasurer and son of party chief
M Karunanidhi, M K Stalin, on Saturday asked his supporters to
desist from celebrating his birthday saying the situation was
not conducive for such a celebration.
The former deputy Chief Minister, who will turn 60 on
March 1, asked the followers to instead undertake welfare
measures to help the poor under the banner "Youth Rise Day".
Stalin is also DMK Youth Wing secretary.
"In the eight-month old Jayalalithaa government people have
been suffering from untold miseries including hike in milk
prices and bus fares besides deteriorating law and order," he
said in a party statement.
Stalin charged that while no welfare schemes have been
announced by the ruling AIADMK, the new regime had ended
schemes initiated by the previous DMK government.
"We are witnessing the framing of our partymen under
foisted cases. Therefore, my strict request is that it is not
the time to celebrate my birthday," Stalin said.
