It's all over for ADMK as the DMK alliance has ousted the ADMK regime from the reign and is all set to form the new government after a decade. Stalin-led DMK alliance has been leading in 158 seats and with the trend would be unchanged, it is confirmed that DMK has won Tamil Nadu and Stalin will be swearing-in as the Chief Minister for the first time.
As the vote-counting of the crucial assembly polls had revealed that Stalin is the people's choice to rule the state for the next five years, several national leaders and notable figures have been wishing Tamil Nadu Chief Minister-elect MK Stalin for registering a resounding victory. In line with that, Superstar Rajinikanth has extended his wish to Stalin over his impressive win.
Rajinikanth had released a statement and extended his congratulation. Taking to Twitter, the superstar actor has put out the statement in which he has said, "I heartily congratulate my dear friend respected MK Stalin, who efficiently and restlessly worked in the elections and won, that he lives with good life and health and he rules in a way of satisfying the people of all backgrounds and that he earns reputation by transforming Tamil Nadu into a prosperous state."
