Aruppukottai: DMDK leader Vijayakant on Sunday lambasted the AIADMK government for not taking steps to end the power crisis in Tamil Nadu and sought to know the need to distribute mixies and grinders and fans free of cost without power supply.

"If the situation continues, the AIADMK government will face the same fate as the DMK" (which was routed in the last assembly polls), he said at a private function here.

He said though he is happy with the freebies, he would not block welfare measures reaching the poor.

He said weavers in Aruppukottai area had been badly hit due to power cut and students were not able to study for their exams. He also said the law and order situation in the State was not satisfactory.

On the 10 day suspension order issued by Speaker D Jayakumar against him for his behaviour on the floor of the assembly, where he made some gestures at treasury benches during a heated debate with the Chief Minister, Vijayakanth said the speaker, instead of taking this action, could have warned him not to gesticulate.

The government should show the same speed in providing relief to those affected by Cyclone Thane in Cuddalore and Villipuram districts, he said.
