Leaders from Tamil Nadu cutting across the political spectrum have offered their support to the state's farmers who have been protesting at Jantar Mantar for the past 19 days demanding a drought relief package of Rs 40,000 crore from the Centre and farm loan waiver.
"Just like how BJP promised farmer loan waiver to UP in its poll manifesto recently, it should promise the same to Tamil Nadu farmers," he told reporters.
The Leader of Opposition in Tamil Nadu Assembly also said that PM Modi should allow the farmers to meet him and offer a consoling solution at the earliest.
Taking a dig at Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Edappadi Palaniswami, Mr Stalin said, "The CM is only keen on R K Nagar elections at the moment."
CPI National Secretary D Raja, DMK MPs Tiruchi Siva and T K S Elangovan were also present.
Mr Stalin said an all-party meeting would soon be held on the issue.
"I asked Ayyakkannu (who is leading the protest) to call off the strike, but they are not ready to give up. An all-party meeting would be held in the state to decide the next course of action on the issue," he added.
