DMK president MK Stalin on Sunday proposed the name of Congress President Rahul Gandhi for the post of Prime Minister.
Addressing a public rally in Chennai, Stalin said, “I propose we will install a new Prime Minister in Delhi. I propose the name of Rahul Gandhi from Tamil Nadu. He has got the ability to defeat the fascist Modi government.”
Stalin urged all political parties to join forces to defeat the Modi government and to support Gandhi.
Stalin further said that the Modi’s regime had halted India’s growth and had taken it 15 years back. “In the last five years of Prime minister Modi’s rule, the country has gone 15 years behind. If we give another chance to him, surely the country will go 50 years back. Prime Minister Modi is behaving like a king, that is why we have all come together to safeguard democracy and country,” he added.
Stalin was addressing a gathering after the event of unveiling a life-size statue of Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) patriarch M Karunanidhi at party’s headquarters which was attended by Congress president Rahul Gandhi, UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi along with Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu, Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan and several leaders of the DMK.
