Puducherry, Sep 20 : AIADMK legislature Party leader A Anbazhagan on Friday castigated Puducherry Pradesh Congress Committee (PCC) President and PWD Minister A Namasivayam for criticising Tamil Nadu Minister Rajendra Balaji on Thursday and said not even a grass root cadre of the AIADMK will be frightened due to his threat.
In a statement here, Mr Anbazhagan said Mr Namasivayam criticized Mr Balaji without knowing his eligibility to do so. Mr Anbazhagan charged the DMK for adopting a ‘double stand” on the Hindi language issue. He said Union Home Minister Amit Shah’s statement was twisted for political gains and DMK President M K Stalin announced an agitation and later withdrew it.
This shows that the DMK could not take a firm stand on the issue and the statement that the agitation to be held today is being called off following an assurance from Tamil Nadu Governor Banwarlal Purohit is to “cheat” the people, Mr Anbazhagan said. (UNI)
