Chennai: “Under the DMK regime, there is no security for the public, there is no security for the few prisoners in the jail, there is no security for the honest guards who are fighting to reform the prisoners,” said Edappadi Palaniswami, Leader of the Opposition in the Legislative Assembly.
In a statement issued in this regard, he said, “This incompetent government is running errands to prove the proverb that if you give a fox a piece of land, it will get two dogs.”

Since the DMK government took charge, Tamil Nadu is turning into a graveyard due to the incompetence of the DMK government for the past 15 months, which has been known as the daily murder, robbery, rape of female students and drugs.
I have pointed this out several times in the Assembly, through reports and in interviews with reporters, but neither the Chief Minister nor the senior officials nor the police department seem to have taken any action.
Anti-social forces and miscreants are threatening people with various crimes as if this regime has given them license.
A prison is a place where criminals are matured and reformed. At that location, it is not known how the convicts get access to cell phones, batteries, weapons and drug paraphernalia.
According to news reports, when the rowdy from Ennore, Chennai was detained in Cuddalore jail in a case, the assistant jailer of the jail, while conducting a surprise search in the jail, confiscated cell phones and batteries from the above-mentioned prisoner.
On 27.8.2022, some miscreants hurled petrol bombs inside the sub-jailer’s house located near the Cuddalore Jail complex, which is located in the guard house with security guard. Reports suggest that the sub-jailer was out of town and his family was in another cell, so he survived.
Similarly, in all jails in Tamil Nadu, banned items such as cell phones, drugs, weapons etc. are widely available, according to news reports. In this case, the incident of attacking the house of an officer who conducted an honest search and confiscated prohibited items is highly condemnable.
On 28.8.2022, a 62-year-old prisoner died mysteriously in Madurai Central Jail. In this DMK regime, the public is not safe, the few prisoners in the jail are not safe, and the honest guards who are fighting to reform the prisoners are not safe.
At the same time, anti-social elements roam in and out of jail with all facilities. The public and especially women now feel that they were protected during the last 10 years of AIADMK rule. Now people are afraid of not being able to walk on the streets even in broad daylight.
Especially from children to the elderly, women are afraid to step out of their homes due to the insecurity of their lives and property. “The day a woman wears jewels and walks alone at night is the day we gain true freedom,” Mahatma Gandhi said on that day.
Tamil Nadu, which was a paradise of peace during the late Chief Minister Jayalalithaa’s regime, has gone down the path of destruction under the current DMK regime. It is a wonder that the people of Tamil Nadu did not fall on the ears of the people of Tamil Nadu who screamed that “the day this DMK regime is removed, we will have complete freedom”.
Do you not hear the cries of the people because the voices of those who praise him are ringing in the ears of the Chief Minister? These rulers, who are incapable of protecting the people and have failed to protect the guards who are on duty to protect the people, must wake up from their Kumbakarna slumber. Otherwise, I warn that AIADMK will engage in a crusade to wake up the DMK government,” he said.
