He specifically instructed his ministers to counter the comment made by INDIA, underscoring the importance of unequivocal condemnation for such remarks.
This response from Prime Minister Modi came in the wake of Udhayanidhi Stalin's statement, where he cited the omission of an invitation to President Droupadi Murmu by the Central government for the inauguration of the new parliament as an instance of discrimination attributed to practitioners of Sanatana Dharma.
