Chennai, Sep 13 (UNI) Continuing his tirade against Prime Minister
Narendra Modi, Tamil Nadu Chief Minister and DMK President M.K.Stalin
on Wednesday said the BJP-led Government at the Centre is trying to
shield itself under the Sanatana Dharma row to cover up its failures and
In a statement here, he said the BJP government, which was trying
to divert the attention of the people using the Sanatana dharma
issue and spreading hatred, should be defeated in the next year's
Lok Sabha polls and the Opposition-led INDIA bloc should win it.
Hitting out Mr Modi for remaining silent on several burning issues
faced by the country, he said by advising his colleagues in the
Cabinet meeting to give adequate reply to Sanatana row--in the
wake of some remarks made by Tamil Nadu Minister and DMK
Youth Wing Leader Udhayanidhi Stalin that led to a polical row--it
meant that the Prime Minister was trying to hide himself under name
of Sanatana dharma.
Alleging that the Modi government has not fulfilled any of its
promises ever since he came to power in 2014, Mr Stalin said
the Prime Minister has not uplifted the livelihood of the poor
people, not created job opportunities to lit up the lights in the
lives of youth, murdered the democracy and taking the country
to a dangerous path through its Autocratic rule.
He said the BJP government has lost the people's faith and to
cover it up are indulging in publicity campaigns.
Mr Stalin alleged that there were irregularities in schemes like
Bharat Mala, Dwaraka express highway project, toll plaza rates,
Ayushman Bharat, Ayodhya development scheme, Village pension
schemes and HAL airport scheme as highlighted by the CAG in its

CAG, the BJP is hiding its face using Sanatana Dharma as a cover",

end to the Manipur issue, which has been burning for the last four
months. Even police firing has taken place two days back.
"Without allowing to talk about these issues, the BJP is trying to
divert the attention", the Chief Minister said.
