Share post:


Chennai, March 4: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday addressed a massive gathering of people at the YMCA Ground here. During his speech, PM Modi criticised the M.K. Stalin-led DMK government in the state over several issues.
A number of senior Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leaders and party workers were also present at the rally.
Tamil Nadu unit BJP president, K. Annamalai; Union Minister of State for Fisheries, L. Murugan; Mahila Morcha national president and Coimbatore South MLA, Vanathi Srinivasan, among others, were present on the stage along with PM Modi.
Speaking at the rally, PM Modi said that the DMK government in Tamil Nadu failed miserably in flood management when the state faced a crisis in December 2023.
PM Modi said that the DMK government, however, managed to make it appear that “everything was fine”.
He said that the people suffered immensely in the floods, but the state government did not do anything to help them.
PM Modi also said that both the DMK and the Congress are family-centric parties. This was an oblique reference to CM M.K. Stalin’s family having a significant hold on the DMK’s political affairs. The Chief Minister’s son, Udayanidhi Stalin, is a minister in the Tamil Nadu Cabinet, while the CM’s sister — Kanimozhi Karunanidhi, is a Member of Parliament.
The PM also said that the DMK and Congress were not able to digest the popularity and growth of the BJP in Tamil Nadu.
PM Modi’s rally here is being considered the beginning of the BJP’s election campaign in Tamil Nadu. (IANS)
