Flanked by the senior leaders of the AIADMK, he submitted a memorandum to the Governor against the "corrupt practices" of the DMK government.
Speaking to journalists after meeting the Governor, Palaniswami said that if the Tamil Nadu Police had acted immediately following the tip-off from central agencies, the Coimbatore car blast could have been averted. He said that as the blast occurred in a place without human habitation, only one person died, adding that if the blast had taken place in a densely-populated area, the magnitude of the damage could not be measured.
He said that the DMK government indulged in corruption and the Governor was inquiring into the corruption charges, and hence the DMK was criticising the Governor.
"If the Governor supports the government, they praise him, else they will criticise him harshly," he claimed.
The former Chief Minister in his memorandum to the Governor pointed out that there was shortage of basic medicines in the state as well as life-saving drugs in government hospitals. The AIADMK delegation requested the Governor to take action as per the legislation passed on the banning of online games of chance and online gambling.
The memorandum also mentioned the functioning of illegal bars in the state as well as the vandalising of a private school in Kallakurichi in July this year.
