Tamil Nadu farmers' plight: DMK calls for bandh on April 25
 
(Chennai, Apr, 16,2017):An allparty meeting called by Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) Working President MK Stalin, was conducted at the party's headquarters today. The attending parties passed a resolution calling for a statewide bandh on April 25 to demand relief for Tamil Nadu's farmers.

Neither the two factions of the AIADMK, nor the BJP were invited to the meet, which was attended the Congress, CPM, CPI and Viduthalai Chiruthaigal Katchi (VCK). Stalin made it clear that his move wasn't to form a coalition against BJP but to only find a solution for the farmers' plight.

The parties passed resolutions on waiving off farmer loans, implementing total prohibition, getting exclusion from NEET exams, and other issues. They also decided to hold a public meeting on April 22 in Chennai.

On April 25, a group of delegates from various parties will try and meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

The allparty meet also took up the issue of the water shortage Chennai is expected to face this summer, and passed a resolution seeking the government's intervention.
