The DMK government has also withdrawn the complete lockdown on January 30 (Sunday). The decision I this regard was taken following a meeting chaired by Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M K Stalin, which was also attended by state’s Health Minister Ma Subramanian, Chief Secretary V Irai Anbu, and other officials.
K Palaniswami alleges that acts of vendetta politics are meant to divert public glare from the DMK’s inability to fulfill their tall poll promises. uring the newly formed DMK government’s tenure, state agencies have been probing graft cases against influential leaders of the AIADMK and the former ministers. MR Vijayabaskar and SP Velumani are among the ministers who were under the agencies’ scanner.
Panneerselvam said that the DMK had made over 500 poll promises and that it ended up getting just three percent more votes than the AIADMK. As per AIADMK, DMK President MK Stalin, his sister Kanimozhi and his son Udhayanidhi Stalin had promised that the party would cancel the NEET entrance exam for medical entrance after coming to power. AIADMK alleged that the DMK had done a volte-face after coming to power and is now asking students to prepare for the NEET exam.
Vaccination against COVID-19 will be halted in Tamil Nadu from Tuesday evening onwards, as the current stocks are projected to be exhausted, said Health Minister M Subramanian. He said that Tamil Nadu had so far administered over 89lakh doses, and projected that this figure would go up to 92 lakhs by end of day.
