A gentle jibe at DMK leader during session

“Stalin (DMK working president) may have won, but he cannot become the chief minister,â€the Minister said.

Chennai: The Assembly witnessed lighter moments, albeit the absence of the opposition DMK members, when Minister for Forests Dindigul C. Sreenivasan related the story of Gnana-Pazham (the fruit of knowledge) and sarcastically remarked that though the “younger brother denied the fruit to his elder brother, he cannot become the Chief Minister.”

The Minister who was at his sarcastic best during his reply to the discussion on the demands for grants for his department in the Assembly on Wednesday, said “in the competition between the two brothers Lord Ganesh wins the fruit from his parents by perambulating them, while his younger brother who takes off to the skies on his peacock, loses the race.”

But in the modern day, it was the other way round. “The younger brother gets the fruit not the elder brother. I hope you understand whom I am referring to,” Mr Sreenivasan said amidst loud thumping from the Treasury Benches.

“Stalin (DMK working president) may have won, but he cannot become the chief minister,” the Minister said.

Mr Sreenivasan, who showered words of praise on Chief Minister Edappadi K. Palaniswami, said the AIADMK factions would unite soon.
