BJP chief J P Nadda on Friday rooted for Tamil language and culture by touching on issues, including the emotive ‘Jallikattu, the bull taming sport, guarding fishermen and protecting Sri Lankan Tamils’ interests. In his rallies in the run up to the April 6 Tamil Nadu Assembly polls, he aligned his campaign line with that of the ruling AIADMK, which has been relentlessly targeting the DMK for its ‘dynastic’ politics, besides corruption.
Nadda picked DMK and its partner Congress over charges of corruption and family politics and urged the electorate to reject them and also targeted them on Jallikattu. Also, he harped on a ‘long leap’ forward for the state in development, which would be propelled by his party-led government at the Centre and ally, the AIADMK in Tamil Nadu.
Supported by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the AIADMK government worked for Tamil Nadu’s growth and the goal is that the state should take a ‘long leap’ in development, he said. Asking people to remember the ‘corruption’ of DMK and Congress while in power and the days of ‘policy paralysis’ at the Centre when the latter steered the union government, Nadda alleged that the “DMK-Congress alliance is 2G, 3G, and 4G.” He alleged that 2G denoted corruption of the Maran family (DMK) for two generations, 3G stood for graft of DMK chief M K Stalin’s family for three generations and 4G for four generations of Congress-Gandhi family’s corruption.
