PM Modi hits out at Congress, DMK in Tamil Nadu, says both 'looting' the state

Vellore/IBNS/UNI: Continuing his onslaught on the ruling DMK in Tamil Nadu and its ally the Congress, Prime Minister Narendra Modi Wednesday alleged that the whole DMK has become a company of a family and is looting the State.

Addressing an election meeting to canvass votes for the BJP-led NDA candidates here in this fort town, he hit out at the state government and said the DMK wants to keep the state trapped in old thinking and old politics.

“The whole DMK has become a family company of a family. Due to DMK's family politics, the youth of Tamil Nadu are not getting a chance to move ahead," he charged.

Accusing the DMK of corruption, Modi said the DMK had first copyright on corruption and the entire 'family' was intent on looting the State.

Referring to the recent arrest of a DMK functionary, who was later expelled from the party after the NCB established that he was the kingpin in a drug cartel, the Prime Minister asked whose protection these drug mafias have.

"Which family does the drug mafia arrested by NCB belong to?" he said.

Accusing the DMK of dividing the people in the name of region, religion, and caste, he said he would expose this decade-old dangerous politics of the DMK.

"It (the DMK) knows that the day people understand the politics of divide and rule, it will not get a single vote".

"I have decided that I will continue to expose this decades-old dangerous politics of DMK," he asserted.

Raising the Katchatheevu issue--an islet that was ceded to Sri Lanka by India by a 1974 agreement-- Modi blamed both the Congress and the DMK for this.

Since ceding the islet, Tamil Nadu fishermen were subjected to arrests by the Sri Lankan Navy which has also been confiscating these boats, Mr Modi said, adding, that while the Congress and DMK sow fake compassion, it was the BJP-led NDA government at the Centre which was ensuring the permanent release of fishermen and even saved them from gallows in the Island Nation.

He also sought to know in which Cabinet meeting this decision (ceding Katchatheevu) was taken. "the Congress has not given any answers to this", he added.

Hitting out at the Congress on its leader Rahul Gandhi's Shakti remarks, the Prime Minister said that it is the mentality of the DMK as well.

He said the Opposition INDIA alliance ill-treated women and recalled how the DMK government ill-treated late AIADMK leader Jayalalithaa when she was alive.

Modi said those who are sitting in Delhi may not know that the land of Vellore, the land of Tamil Nadu is going to make a new history. BJP and NDA are getting immense public support in Tamil Nadu.

The whole of Tamil Nadu is saying 'Ek baar phir Modi sarkar', he added.

He said: "India is emerging as a power in the world today and I am happy that Tamil Nadu has played a big role in this. Tamil Nadu has made a huge contribution in taking India forward in the space sector."
