LS poll: MK Stalin trains guns at PM Modi in his poll campaigns, calls him 'vasool raja', 'anit-Tamil Nadu'

Chennai/IBNS: As Tamil Nadu gears up for voting in the first phase of Lok Sabha polls on April 19, Chief Minister MK Stalin has attacked the Bharatiya Janata Party calling Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who is at the centre of BJP's election campaign, as “anti-Tamil Nadu” and “anti-federalism”.

Stalin, who addresses two public meetings a day on average, is focussing solely on Modi drawing similarity to a “migratory bird” that visits sanctuaries only during the season, referring to the Prime Minister’s "no-show" in the state when six districts were battling unprecedented floods.

In one of the meetings, Stalin mocked the BJP’s anti-corruption stance saying if one were to build a university for graft, Modi would be its vice-chancellor as the DMK chief highlighted the CAG reports that have flagged “irregularities” on Centre's various projects in the past 10 years.

He also called PM Modi a “vasool raja” while taking a dig at the electoral bonds, and said that a public rally which was addressed by him and Rahul Gandhi has shaken the saffron camp.

One of the prime faces of the INDIA alliance, Stalin said if the bloc won this election, the next Prime Minister would be someone who believes in social justice, a plank that is quite popular in Tamil Nadu.

The DMK chief did not even spare his rival in the state the AIDMK, accusing them of having a "secret relationship" with the BJP, who was its former ally partner.

Stating that DMK believes that Modi is still “unpopular” in Tamil Nadu, Stalin told the Deccan Herald: "Moreover, the BJP’s face is Modi and who else do we attack if we have to oppose the policies of the decade-long tenure of the BJP government. When Modi continues to single out the DMK in his public meetings, we have to counter it strongly. Who better than our leader to this?"

“Modi and his anti-Tamil attitude was the sole campaign point in 2019 and we believe that will work this time too. The attacks will only get sharper as we need to tell the people that the SPA is the only combine that takes the BJP head-on,” he said.
