New details on Katchatheevu have unmasked DMK’s double standards totally: Modi


Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday once again reacted to the Katchatheevu island issue and slammed DMK saying the new details emerging on the matter have "unmasked" the party's double standards, The Times of India reported. 

Taking to X, PM Modi cited a TOI report, which claimed that then Tamil Nadu chief minister M Karunanidhi had given his concurrence to the agreement despite his party the DMK's public posturing against the deal.

The Prime Minister alleged the ruling party of Tamil Nadu did nothing to safeguard the state's interests. He also targeted the Congress saying that both the parties are "family units" who prioritize their family interests.

"Rhetoric aside, DMK has done NOTHING to safeguard Tamil Nadu’s interests. New details emerging on #Katchatheevu have UNMASKED the DMK’s double standards totally. Congress and DMK are family units. They only care that their own sons and daughters rise. They don’t care for anyone else. Their callousness on Katchatheevu has harmed the interests of our poor fishermen and fisherwomen in particular," the PM wrote on the social media platform.

On Sunday, PM Modi targeted the Congress over the issue and came down heavily on the grand old party for giving away the Katchatheevu island to Sri Lanka during the tenure of the Indira Gandhi government in 1974. He said this has infuriated people, adding that the Congress can never be trusted. "Weakening India's unity, integrity and interests has been the Congress' way of working for 75 years and counting," the PM wrote on X. (The Times of India)
