DMK-Cong alliance in TN is for corruption': Amit Shah

Shah also assured the textile and weaving community to incorporate all their requirements.

Erode: Assailing the DMK-Congress alliance for the coming Lok Sabha polls in Tamil Nadu as a “pact forged for indulging in corruption”, the BJP national president Mr Amit Shah said on Thursday that the BJP-led NDA would soon form a strong alliance in the state.

Speaking while interacting with weavers and power-loom workers at Texvalley textile park at Gangapuram near Erode on Thursday, Shah said, “our alliance will contest all the 40 Lok Sabha seats in Tamil Nadu and Puducherry.” The DMK-Congress alliance on the contrary is anti-development, alleged Shah.

Asserting that he was under no obligation to respond to the DMK president M K Stalin’s poser on what the BJP government had done for Tamil Nadu in the last five years, Mr. Shah turned the table saying he would rather respond to the people of Tamil Nadu on the various development and welfare schemes initiated by the Narendra Modi-led BJP government at the Centre.

“In the 14th Finance commission’s devolution we (BJP) has devolved 5.20 times more funds to Tamil Nadu than what the previous Congress-led UPA government had devolved to the state under the 13th Finance commission’s recommendations,” Amit Shah thundered and asked Stalin to explain the multiple scams under the previous UPA regime in which DMK was part.

Shah also assured the textile and weaving community to incorporate all their requirements and concerns in the Lok Sabha election manifesto the BJP was preparing after consultations with the people in each State.
