DMK’s Working President M.K. Stalin on Friday said his party and its alliance partners will protest till the AIADMK government falls in the state if the Governor C. Vidyasagar Rao does not convene the assembly within a given time.

Attending an event at Thanjavur, he said that the K. Palaniswami-headed AIADMK government has lost its majority as 19 ruling party legislators have given a letter to Rao withdrawing their support.

Stalin said DMK and its allies are likely to meet Rao on September 10 where they would request him to convene the assembly within a specified date.

If the Governor does not take steps to convene the assembly within the suggested date, then the party will not only act legally but mobilise the support of people to mount protests for bringing down the state government, he said.

Stalin said that the DMK is not eager to come to power but the situation in Tamil Nadu has worsened badly.
