Tamil Nadu shutdown will be 'turning point' in state politics: DMK leader

Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) Party leader A. Saravanan on Monday asserted that the ongoing shutdown across Tamil Nadu will prove to be a major 'turning point' in the state politics. Commenting upon the farmers calling off their protest at Jantar Mantar, Saravanan said that Chief Minister E Palaniswami should have met the farmers much earlier. A state-wide 'bandh' is being observed across Tamil Nadu in support of the drought-hit farmers today.
