Chief Minister Edappadi K Palaniswami and Deputy Chief Minister O Panneerselvam showered encomiums on Prime Minister Narendra Modi at NDA’s public meeting in Dharapuram on Tuesday.
“The PM works for the development of India without wasting even a minute. He has made the dream of Indians to lift India as superpower come true,” EPS said.
“As far as TN is concerned, he is a PM who grants all the schemes we want. He has made TN as the state with the best road infrastructure by granting ₹1.5 lakh crore for widening and development of 5,600km of road,” he continued.
EPS then sought the support of Modi to complete Godavari–Cauvery river linking project. “When the scheme materializes, TN people will rejoice. Water shortage would become a thing of the past,” he said.
Panneerselvam called Modi the ‘real jallikattu hero’.
“Many call me the Jallikattu Nayagan. But the real hero is Modi. Because it was he who got four government departments to pass orders within 24 hours facilitating the removal of the ban on jallikattu,” he said.
The PM commenced his speech with ‘Veera Vel, Vetri Vel’ chant.
Without naming A Raja, Modi said the Congress and the DMK have launched their ‘outdated 2G missile’ and this missile has one clear target, the women of Tamilnadu.
“Congress and DMK have insulted the respected mother of chief minister Edappadi K Palaniswami. God forbid, if they come to power, they will insult many other women of Tamil Nadu,” the PM said.
He also recalled the alleged attack on late chief minister J Jayalalithaa in the state assembly in 1989, DMK orator Dindigul Leoni’s alleged sexist speech about obese women and Udhayanidhi Stalin’s controversial statements.
