This will be the sixth time the chief minister will be from the DMK since 1967, when party founder C N Annadurai was first elected to the post. Stalin’s father M Karunanidhi held the post thereafter. Many supporters of the party celebrated the event in social media by sharing the videos and pictures of Stalin taking oath as chief minister of Tamil nadu for the first time.
A number of supporters came up with posts saying that Stalin has proved that Astrology is “False” by becoming the Chief minister of the state while many from the opposition parties believed that his horoscope wouldn’t help him in forming a government in Tamil nadu.
ஜோசியம் ஒரு புரட்டு என பெரியார் பல ஆண்டுகளாக சொன்னதை அதிகாரப்பூர்வமாக நிரூபித்துக்காட்டியுள்ளார் ஸ்டாலின்.— Athisha (@athisha) May 7, 2021
“Stalin has officially proved that “astrology” is fake which was preached by Periyar for several years” said one of a twitter user whereas another one came up with a video where we could see the members of other political parties firmly stating that Stalin won’t become Tamil nadu’s chief minister due to his horoscope. ADMK’s Vijaya bhaskar, Actor cum politician Radha Ravi, BJP’s S.Ve Shekar and H. Raja are some of the politicians who believed that Stalin’s horoscope won’t let him become the Chief minister of the Tamil speaking state.

Astrology is a fraud. It corrupts, manipulates people minds. One of the main issue why India lacks innovations and under developed in most of the fields.— Hank Evans (@hank__evans) May 7, 2021
