“Outdated 2G Missile”: PM Modi Hits Out At DMK’s A Raja

PM Modi, without naming A Raja, said the Congress and the DMK have launched their ”outdated 2G missile”.

Taking on Tamil Nadu’s opposition DMK today over its senior leader A Raja’s insult to Chief Minister E Palaniswami, Prime Minister Narendra Modi today called him an ”outdated 2G missile”. The AIADMK has been at the centre of the backlash over the remark of the former Union minister.

PM Modi, without naming A Raja, said the Congress and the DMK have launched their ”outdated 2G missile”. The missile, he added, has one clear target — the women of Tamil Nadu.

“A few days ago, this missile was launched by the UPA with a clear order to attack the nari shakti (women power) of Tamil Nadu. Today the Congress and the DMK have insulted the respected mother of Tamil Nadu Chief Minister K Palaniswami,” PM Modi said.

“God forbid, if they come to power, they will insult many other women of Tamil Nadu,” he added.

In a recent campaign speech, Mr Raja heaped insults on the Chief Minister, making unparliamentary remarks about his birth and saying he was “worth a rupee less than [DMK chief MK] Stalin’s slipper”.

Mr Palaniswami, campaigning for the April 6 elections, almost broke down on Sunday.

“My mother was poor but worked hard all her life. Now she is no more. Whether poor or rich, a mother’s position and status is high. If this can happen to a man who is chief minister, think about what will happen to ordinary people like you,” the Tamil Nadu CM said.
“I did not want to raise this issue but I couldn’t stop myself, seeing the women here… what protection do your mothers and women have if this is what the mother of the Chief Minister has to endure? You can imagine what will happen if they come to power,” he had added.
