TN: PM Modi targets DMK over women empowerment, ‘to insult women is part of Congress-DMK culture'
Modi dubbed former union telecom minister A Raja, as an 'outdated 2G missile' of the Congress and DMK.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday targeted the Congress and Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) in Tamil Nadu, saying his Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is contesting on the basis of "development agenda" but leaders of the opposition parties are focused on "dynasty agenda”.
PM Modi also said opposition parties don't have anything positive to offer. "In their speeches, all they do is demean others and spread lies," PM Modi said while addressing a rally in support of the candidates contesting from the southern state.
In a veiled attack, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday dubbed former union telecom minister A Raja, as an 'outdated 2G missile' of the Congress and DMK and slammed him for insulting the mother of Chief Minister K Palaniswami and targeting Tamil Nadu women.
Without naming Raja, Modi in his election rally here said Congress and DMK have launched their 'outdated 2G missile' and this missile has one clear target, the women of Tamil Nadu.
"A few days back, this missile was launched by UPA with a clear order to attack the nari shakti of Tamil Nadu."
Days ago, in his campaign, Raja allegedly spoke in an offensive manner over the birth of Palaniswami and the ruling AIADMK lodged a police complaint and a case has been registered against him.
In response to the derogatory remarks of the DMK leaders, Prime Minister Narendra Modi while addressing a rally in Dharapuram, Tamil Nadu said, "Congress and DMK have insulted the respected mother of Tamil Nadu’s Chief Minister. God forbid, if they come to power, they will insult many other women of Tamil Nadu." PM Modi added, "I want to tell the Congress and DMK- the people of Tamil Nadu are noting everything. They will never tolerate insult to the women of the state."
PM Modi also said the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) family is "seeking vote based on our solid agenda of all-round development inspired by the ideas of 'Amma' Jayalalithaa and MGR." "Vote for the BJP is a vote to solve long-standing issue of the state," he also said during the public meeting.
