Prime Minister campaigns for DPA

Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Thursday campaigned for the DPA alliance in Tamil Nadu. Addressing an election meeting on the Island grounds in Chennai, Manmohan Singh urged the people to vote for the DMK led DPA alliance for better economic development and communal harmony in the state. In his twenty minute speech, Mr. Singh was more focused on the achievements of the UPA government at the Center in promoting economic development in the country. Meanwhile, DMK chief Karunanidhi, who also participated at the meeting, said his party, was not after power but rather to protect self respect and Tamil culture. He attacked the Jayalalitha led government as being autocratic and said that the state has failed to achieve economic development during its rein. Union Ministers GK Vasan and Dayanidhi Maran were also present at the election meeting.
