People wanted Modi, Palaniswami govts to continue: O Panneerselvam

Madurai | Tamil Nadu deputy chief minister O Panneerselvam on Saturday said the outcome of Lok Sabha elections and assembly bypolls proved people wanted the continuation of the Narendra Modi and AIADMK governments at the Centre and the state respectively.

“People at the All-India level wanted Narendra Modi to continue as the Prime Minister and people in Tamil Nadu wanted the Amma (Jayalalithaa) regime to continue. This is what the poll verdict says,” he told reporters here.

He was referring to the AIADMK winning nine assembly seats in the bypolls to 22 segments which virtually ensured continuation of the K Palaniswami government till 2021 and the BJP-led NDA getting over 350 seats in the Lok Sabha polls.

The NDA, however, managed to win only one Lok Sabha seat out of the 38 that went to polls in Tamil Nadu with the DMK-led alliance sweeping the rest.
