He said that the Dravidian model was only for further enhancing the developments made in the last 50 years. The Tamil Nadu Chief Minister said that the state witnessed huge development due to two language policies, infrastructure, development of the Tamil language, reservation rights, creation of social upliftment, and struggle for state's rights during the past 50 years.

Stalin said that the DMK was a political party based on the ideals of social justice, equality, self-respect, communal rights, linguistic affinity, and state autonomy and added that the development of the state should be based on these ideals.

He said that the development should include both economic and social development and said that the Dravidian ideologue, Thanthai Periyar, Perarignar Anna, and his father Muthamizh Arignar Kalaignar had envisioned this model of development.

The Tamil Nadu Chief Minister also said that the ideals and thought process of late Thanthai Periyar are now being used in the modern world.
