Launching his party's campaign on social media for the upcoming 2024 Lok Sabha polls, DMK president and Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M.K. Stalin, on Thursday, announced that he will start a podcast series titled 'Speaking For India' to expose the BJP and how the saffron party ruined the country. The chief minister made the announcement before leaving for Mumbai for the meeting of the INDIA alliance.

The series will be on the lines of the programme ‘Ungalil Oruvan’ (one amongst you) in which Stalin used to interact with the public in a question-and-answer format. In a video running to 1 minute and 13 seconds, which was released through his X account (formerly called Twitter) Stalin said, “Wait for the voice from the South.” “DMK is a grand old party which is nearing 75 years of its existence. It is the third largest party in the Indian Parliament. We are a fraternity shaped by C.N. Annadurai and M. Karunanidhi, who have left an indelible mark on the Indian political landscape. The times we live in have entrusted us to speak for all of India,” Stalin said in the video posted on his social media account.

Stalin indicated that his campaign would focus on “how BJP wreaked havoc on India” in the last nine years of its rule at the Centre. His podcasts will also focus on a future India, based on the principles of equality and fraternity. “How are we going to build an egalitarian, and harmonious India in the future? I am going to talk about these in a podcast series. Shall we title it ‘Speaking for India’?” he asks in the video.

The podcast will be in English and other Indian languages to take the ideas of Stalin and the INDIA alliance across the country.
