Delhi visit to uphold Tamilnadu rights: Stalin

Chief Minister MK Stalin on Sunday hit back at Leader of Opposition Edappadi K Palaniswami for criticising his New Delhi visit and said that he had gone to the national capital only for the rights of Tamil Nadu.
Speaking at the family wedding of TN Construction Workers Welfare Board chairman Pon Kumar here, Stalin said, “I went (to Delhi) for the rights of Tamil Nadu and nothing else. I say this because I am not an ordinary Stalin. I had stated even while assuming office (of the CM) that I am Muthuvel Karunanidhi Stalin. I am Kalaignar’s son. I will strive for Tamil Nadu forever.”
Recalling his meeting with Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Ministers during his recent Delhi visit, Stalin said, “We had raised the state’s issues and placed requests with the PM and concerned Ministers. Some people, who are unable to tolerate it, are attempting to cover it up, have alleged that I was fear-stricken and I had gone to protect myself from problems I am trapped in. Let me state something very clearly. I did not prostrate before anyone there and seek obligation. I went for the rights of Tamil Nadu.”
