While addressing the reporters after boycotting the session, DMK President M K Stalin has said that he had submitted a letter to the secretary of Tamil Nadu assembly to table an anti -CAA resolution and claimed that the secretary hasn't given any clarity on when the resolution would be brought in the house and stated that the first session of the year will run only for the next two days and the government has shown no signal that it would adopt the resolution as demanded by the opposition.

By urging the government to annul the implementation of the anti-CAA resolution, Stalin said that the state likes West Bengal, Kerala, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Punjab, and Jharkhand have decided not to implement the act in their territories and blamed ADMK government for acting in favor of the BJP and he cited that the parties that voted in favor of the bill in Parliament have now declared that they would veto the act in their states.
