villages in Dharmapuri and Krishnagiri districts if the DMK
came to power in the assembly elections, due in a few months.
Stalin claimed the DMK government had completed 80 per
cent of the work on the Hogenakkal integrated drinking water
“I went to Japan to get funds for the project. But when
the AIADMK came to power, it thwarted the plan. We will
complete the project when the DMK comes to power,” he said.
