Chennai: Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Sunday urged the people of Tamil Nadu to vote for a government which will work with the Centre for double engine growth of the state.
Addressing an election rally at Viluppuram, he appealed to the people to vote for AIADMK, BJP and other NDA allies so that the state continues its march on the path of development.
Slamming the DMK and the Congress, Shah urged the people to reject the parties which are corrupt, believe in dynasty politics and follow divide and rule policy.
“On one hand you have the BJP, AIADMK and their allies who want welfare of the poor and want to keep the economy on rails, while on the other, you have the Congress and DMK who are concerned only about their families, and are neck deep in corruption and do politics of divide and rule,” Shah said at his first election rally in Tamil Nadu after the announcement of the Assembly poll schedule.
Shah alleged that Congress President Sonia Gandhi is concerned only about making Rahul Gandhi the Prime Minister while DMK leader Stalin wants to see his son Udhayanidihi as the Chief Minister. They are not bothered about India and Tamil Nadu, he said.
“In Tamil Nadu you have 2G, 3G and 4G. 2G means Maran’s two generations, 3G means Karunanidhi’s three generations and 4G means Gandhi family’s four generations,” he said.
