Chennai, June 19 (BPNS)
Tamil Nadu Minister for Sports Development and Youth Affairs, Udayanidhi Stalin has said that the DMK cannot be cowed down by arrests and raids and said that the party or its leaders are not afraid of Prime Minister Modi or Home Minister Amit Shah. Udayanidhi who is the son of Chief Minister M.K. Stalin was addressing a gathering at Pudukottai in Tamil Nadu during late hours on Sunday.
The young leader said that the CBI, ED and Income Tax have become volunteer forces of the BJP. He said that the BJP was trying to enter Tamil Nadu through the backdoor as it cannot win elections in the state.
The Tamil Nadu Sports Development and Youth welfare minister said that the DMK will drive out the BJP and their slaves the AIADMK in the 2024 Loksabha elections from Tamil Nadu.
He also charged the Tamil Nadu governor, RN Ravi for keeping 21 files pending without signing as most of them were against the corruption of the AIADMK ministers of the previous government.
It may be noted that the DMK is on a confrontation path with the central government led by BJP after the midnight arrest of Tamil Nadu minister, Senthil Balaji. Chief Minister Stalin has himself come out strongly against the arrest and has even challenged the BJP that the DMK also knows politics and what to do. Stalin has also said that if the DMK retorts, then the BJP may not be able to stand it.
True to his words, the Tamil Nadu police arrested SJ Suryah, BJP state secretary on a complaint by the Madurai CPI-M district committee on charges of spreading false information on social media platforms against the party and its Madurai MP, Su Venkitesan. In a related development, AIADMK Erode district IT Cell office bearer, Gowtham(24) was arrested on complaints by the DMK.
