First family of DMK stealing from TN, claims Rajnath Singh

While at Krishnagiri on Tuesday to campaign for BJP candidate C Narasimhan, Defence Minister Rajnath Singh said that the sand mafia in Tamil Nadu has caused the state to lose Rs 4, 600 crore in the past two years of the DMK rule and that the DMK’s first family is plundering the state.

He continued, saying, “Kannamalai, the state president of the Bharatiya Janata Party, picked the BJP instead of the DMK or AIADMK because the DMK family politics prevent young people in Tamil Nadu from achieving growth. The only party that can provide the country’s young security and hope is the BJP. While the BJP prioritizes the country, the DMK puts its family first.

92% of mobile phones were imported up until 2014; however, as of late, we are exporting them. Prior to 2014, just 20% of the nation had broadband coverage; now, 80% have. 1, 344 crore Unified Payment Interface (UPI) transactions of around Rs 19.78 lakh crore were made in March 2024. 148 airports were constructed during the nine years of the BJP administration, compared to 74 prior. Additionally, under the Congress administration, exports of defense items totaled Rs 600 crore; now, they exceed Rs 21, 000 crore, placing India among the top 25 exporters of defense goods worldwide, according to Singh.

He drew attention to the profane statements made by opposing parties, particularly the DMK, on Hindu gods, Hinduism, and women. He said that Modi had shielded several Tamil fishermen from the Sri Lankan Navy.

“When I go to Tamil Nadu, I think about J Jayalalithaa, the previous chief minister of the AIADMK, who strived to better the lives of the underprivileged. Tamil Nadu has provided leaders like K Kamaraj, MG Ramachandran, and C Rajagopalachari, as well as several humanitarian programs, like as the midday meal plan. These leaders serve as an inspiration to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, he said.
