S Ramadoss, PMK founder said, "The party had the "responsibility" to work hard for the AIADMK's victory, more than extending our support and cadre should work "thrice" more for the ruling camp and its allies."
Reassuring the cadre in Coimbatore, Karur, Madurai and Tuticorin and the neighboring districts to work in harmony with the AIADMK election committee, Ramadoss added, "The commitment of the cadre ensured that victory is certain for the candidates of AIADMK-led alliance in the general elections and bypolls to assembly seats. The collaboration and extraordinary poll work should continue for the four seats as well,"
The remark from Ramadoss came a day after DMK allies led by VCK leader Thol Thirumavalavan went against the PMK leadership for the Ponparappi violence against Dalit villagers on poll day. They commanded a repoll in Ponparappi.
BJP state president Tamilisai Soundararajan said "My party leaders would campaign extensively in the four by poll seats in support of AIADMK candidates in the coming days. My intensive campaign would be in Ottapidaram seat that falls under her parliamentary constituency."
"We continue our alliance with AIADMK as we don't want to see DMK-Congress combine winning. TTV Dhinakaran is corrupt and there is no doubt about it. EPS government will be stable by winning more seats. The AIADMK government remained supportive of the Central schemes." she added.
