Slugfest in Tamil Nadu elections
Tamil Nadu goes to poll on April 6 and this time it looks like a battle of survival between the ruling AIADMK and the opposition DMK. While the ruling AIADMK is fighting back after a disastrous performance in the 2019 general elections, DMK looks resurgent to get back the lost space. The votes for the assembly elections will be counted on May 2.
What did A Raja say about EPS?
He called EPS a jaggery worker and said that he couldn’t compete with Stalin. He even went on to say that even Stalin’s chappal worth more than EPS. A Raja said that EPS was showing the guts that even Nehru, Indira Gandhi, or Modi didn’t have. He said that EPS believed that the money he had looted and his party would save him. A Raja said that EPS said that he would stop Stalin. If EPS did so, his car won’t go from his residence to his office, said A Raja.
How did EPS reply to Raja’s remark?
EPS said that he had risen from meager means but Stalin had been born with a silver spoon in his mouth. He said that DMK did a scam referring to the 2G spectrum scandal. He said the DMK was behind a ₹ 1.76 lakh crore corruption scam and that money could buy anything for Stalin.
