DMK president and Leader of Opposition M K Stalin has said the ruling AIADMK is afraid of his party.
Speaking to the media in Chennai, he said, “the DMK is a nightmare to the AIADMK.” He also urged the ruling party to sue him if it has guts.
Stalin and the ruling dispensation have been involved in a war of words over multiple issues, it is to be noted. Recently, Stalin urged the state transport department to give up the proposal of hiking price of monthly passes from Rs 1,000 to Rs 1,300.
IIn a statement, he hit out the transport department stating that “the department is floundering as to how to operate transport corporations with profit, but it is only focusing on increasing fare.”
In a recent interview to The Hindu, he alleged that there was a deliberate attempt by a section of his opponents to project the party as anti-God and anti-Hindu and that those who could not face the socio-economic and political ideas of the DMK were indulging in the mischievous campaign.
He insisted that the BJP was a non-entity in Tamil Nadu’s politics and asserted that the DMK would work against the idea of one-nation, one-party and one-man rule of Narendra Modi.
A few days ago, the state government, which is to hold MGR birth centenary function in Chennai on September 30, has included names of Stalin and AMMK leader TTV Dhinakaran in the invitation.
