MDMK led by Vaiko on Monday decided to quit the NDA alliance in Tamil Nadu alleging that the BJP government at the Centre was acting against Tamils and betrayed the people of the state.
The MDMK District Secretaries meeting held in Chennai adopted a unanimous resolution to walk out of the NDA, the alliance it joined on the eve of Lok Sabha polls.
The district secretaries meeting, one of the top level wings of the party, urged that India should not support Sri Lanka.
“BJP has been acting against Tamils. Modi wished Mahinda Rajapaksa for elections (there). Modi government is silent on Subramanian Swamy’s proposal for Bharat Ratna for Rajapaksa”, the resolution stated.
According to The Indian Express, the resolution moved by party supremo Vaiko declared that “MDMK can no more be part of the BJP-led NDA as the saffron party-led government has been insensitive to a host of issues concerning Tamil Nadu including Mullaperiyar dam issue”.
The government has given permission for review of Mullaiperiyar dam water level, it charged. “Modi is betraying people of Tamil Nadu,” it said.
