MK Stalin accuses BJP of diverting attention from promises
According to news agency PTI, Stalin alleged that the BJP was making false claims that the DMK was promoting separatism to try to divert attention from its unfulfilled promises. He said this was because his party was trying to hold the central government accountable for the BJP’s pre-poll assurances.
Addressing the DMK’s training program for booth agents from the southern regions of Tamil Nadu at Ramanathapuram, Stalin alleged that the BJP did not honor any of its poll promises. He listed BJP’s poll promises ahead of 2014 and 2019 parliamentary elections.
The promises that Stalin cited in support of his claim included bringing back black money stashed abroad, providing employment opportunities to two crore youth every year and doubling the income of farmers.
Target on PM Modi
DMK chief said on Tamil Nadu-centric issues, “Prime Minister Narendra Modi spoke at Ramanathapuram in April 2014 before he was elected. He had said that Rameswaram would be turned into an international tourist destination. Has he changed Rameshwaram?”
On March 1, 2019, PM Modi laid the foundation stone of the Rameshwaram-Dhanushkodi rail link line. Stalin said, “The 17 km long Rameswaram-Dhanushkodi rail link is yet to be completed.” Stalin said this was also one of the many promises made by PM Modi ‘just for elections’.
