"Rahul Gandhi has accepted to tour the state and meet farmers following a plea made by the TNCC. The Congress workers should make all efforts to make it a success," it said but did not mention when the Congress leader would visit Tamil Nadu.

"The Centre and state government are hand-in-glove in taking steps inimical to farmers' interests. The AIADMK government by supporting the Land Bill has earned the wrath of farmers," it alleged.

Among others, the party slammed the 'anti-people' approach of the BJP-led NDA government at the Centre and vowed to strive for a regime change in Tamil Nadu next year by galvanising people's support against the "corrupt AIADMK government."

Assembly polls in the state are due next year.
The party also condemned the 'oppression by communal forces', in IIT, Madras, where a study circle was derecognised for violation of code of conduct for allegedly criticising Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
