The DMK leader called his remarks a “simile,” which, he said, were in response to Palaniswami’s repeated allegations that DMK chief MK Stalin has “never worked hard to become a leader.”
Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) leader A Raja responded to the Election Commission of India (ECI) notice for alleged derogatory comments against Tamil Nadu chief minister Edappadi K Palaniswami and his mother, requesting that the full text of his speech be considered so that it “wipes out the insult and consequent injury inflicted on me,” news agency ANI reported on Wednesday.
“In Tamil oratory, simile is a well-accepted norm. In my speech, evolution of the political heights and their means of MK Stalin and Edappadi K Palaniswami were compared through a simile as new born babies for the easy understanding of the masses,” Raja’s response to the ECI said, according to ANI.
