When Congress under the Leadership of Indira Gandhi with drew support, Charan Singh Government (constituting MGR’s two ADMK Central Ministers - first Tamil Ministers of non Congress Government) resigned and subsequently India faced Parliamentary Election in 1980.
MGR already alliance with Janata Party and Karunanidhi’s DMK was allied with Indira Congress to face the Election. Sympathy wave for Indira Gandhi was present all over India, Tamil Nadu is no exception.
Indira Gandhi swept the poll and she became the Prime Minister and after that she dismissed MGR Government in Tamil Nadu, Indira Congress and DMK shared 110 seats each for the 1980 Assembly Elections. MGR fought the battle single handedly.
MGR’s foes and media predicted the end of MGR legacy in Tamil Nadu Politics and some even said that MGR will return to acting after the Assembly elections. The opposition expected hands down win, but all was changed by this historical speech of MGR in front of thousands of people not for hours just 6 minutes.
In this speech like other Political Leaders he did not ask to cast their vote to Two leaves instead he indirectly tells them how to vote and why.
Feel it for yourself by watching the video.
I received this historical speech through K.P.Suresh, and I thank him. The images in this video are taken from various books and TV shows. The final video size was 27 MB, I reduced it to 1/3rd size. Pardon for the audio quality since the original version was taken from audio tape, I don't know who took care all these years and made this to CD format. I thank them the unknown persons involved.
