DMK Only Takes Credit: PM Modi 

“DMK is such a party which doesn't do any work but goes ahead to take false credit. Who doesn't know that these people put their stickers on our schemes?,” said PM Modi. 

“Now they have crossed the limit, they have pasted stickers of China to take credit for the ISRO launch pad in Tamil Nadu. They are not ready to see the progress of India's space and with the taxes that you pay, they give advertisements and do not even include a picture of India's space in it. They did not want to share India's space success in front of the world, they insulted our scientists, our space sector, your tax money. Now the time has come to punish the DMK,” said PM Modi in his rally.

DMK's Kanimozhi Responds to PM's Remarks 

Responding to the prime minister's comment, DMK MP Kanimozhi questioned if India had declared China an enemy country. 

“I don't know from where the person who did the artwork, found this picture from. I don't think India has declared China as an enemy country. I have seen that the Prime Minister has invited the Chinese PM and they have gone to Mahabalipuram. Just because you do not want to accept the truth, you are finding reasons to divert the issue,” said Kanimozhi.

PM Claims DMK Ran Away From Pran Pratishtha Event 

“India celebrated the Pran Pratishtha of Ram Mandir in Ayodhya. A few days ago, a resolution was laid in the Parliament regarding the same. All the members of DMK left the house. This behaviour shows how much the DMK leaders despise your faith. DMK and Congress are hell-bent on dividing the nation. Whereas, BJP considers every person as a family member,” said the prime minister.

"There is another change, which today the people Tamil Nadu are feeling even outside the country, this change is the increasing stature of India in the world, the increasing respect of India. When the people of the Tamil community see that they are seen with respect, their belief is strengthened that the central government is doing the right thing. This change has come only because of the country's stable, developing and strong BJP government," PM sai.
