At M Karunanidhis birthday meet, parties make anti BJP pitch

Rajnath Singh

Senior Congress leader Mukul Wasnik and Tamil Nadu Congress chief Su Thirunavukkarasar were among those who accompanied Gandhi to Stalin's residence. Stalin also blamed the BJP of using its majority to crush the Opposition.

Bihar's chief minister Nitish Kumar felicitated by DMK working president MK Stalin during the 94th birthday celebrations of DMK president M Karunanidhi in Chennai on Saturday.

He said by going to the people, political parties can change the discourse of the polity.

"We will never allow silencing of more than a billion India voices". "PM Modi promised 10 lakh jobs, has it been fulfilled so far?", he asked. He unilaterally decides. A few days ago, Arun Jaitley said that the economic decline is not because of demonetisation.

In her message that was released to the media, she said beginning in the 1940s, Karunanidhi's political life dominated the better part of the 20th century and remained an important factor in 17 years of the 21st century.

DMK leaders, former ministers - state and central - visited Karunanidhi's residence.


Thanking Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) working president Stalin for organising the meeting, he said he had a hard job to do since he had to fill the shoes of a "very great man" (referring to Karunanidhi). "First they (BJP) want Congress-free India and now they want an Opposition-free India", he said.

CPI (M) general secretary Sitaram Yechury said leaders of all parties in the country except the RSS and BJP had come together when there was a critical situation in the country.

Chennai was earlier witness to forming of the National Front, but that was against the then ruling Congress govt.

National Conference's Omar Abdullah said the nation needs leaders like Karunanidhi during troubled times.

Mr Stalin said: "There is a need for another independence struggle".
