Tamil Nadu Minister’s derogatory attack on PM, BJP calls it ‘nauseating’


The BJP has come out strongly against Tamil Nadu Minister Anitha Radhakrishnan for using a derogatory word against Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The party called the usage of the offensive term “a nauseating act”.

While addressing a public election campaign event, Radhakrishnan, the state Minister for Fisheries and Animal Husbandry, said the Prime Minister inaugurated projects to honour stalwarts like Sardar Vallabhai Patel and Kamarajar only to garner meagre votes.

“You erected Sardar Vallabhai Patel’s statue to seek Patel community votes. Such disgusting tactics are used by Prime Minister Modi,” he added.

The DMK leader also commented on Modi’s address in Tamil Nadu’s Salem last week, saying that the latter spoke about independence activist Kamarajar “as though they embraced him and brought him to the front”.

Slamming his remarks, the BJP’s unit in Tamil Nadu said in a tweet that Radhakrishnan spoke “disgustingly” about Modi who “hails from a humble background and has dedicated his entire life for the people of India”.

It also claimed that DMK MP Kanimozhi “stood witness to this nauseating act”.

“But, this is not surprising! Infact, this is the vile, vulgar political culture that is in the very DNA of the DMK!,” the tweet said.

The BJP went on to say that Kazimozi “enjoys the speech on stage, exposing her pseudo-feminism” and did not even condemn the usage of the offensive term.

“People will teach the DMK and I.N.D.I. Alliance a fitting lesson! The law will also do its duty! This time the ‘Rising Sun’ will go down the horizon,” it added.
