The BJP has been ousted from power in the Dravidian landscape with the Congress party’s victory in Karnataka, DMK supremo and Tamil Nadu Chief Minister MK Stalin said on Saturday.
Congratulating the Congress, Stalin said that disqualification of MP Rahul Gandhi, misusing premier investigative agencies against political opponents, imposing Hindi, rampant corruption have all echoed in the minds of Karnataka people.
In a tweet, Stalin said: “The land mass of Dravidian family stands clear of BJP. Now let us all work together to win 2024 (LS polls) to restore democracy and constitutional values in India.”
He said: “The unjustifiable disqualification of brother Rahul Gandhi as MP, misusing premier investigative agencies against political opponents, imposing Hindi, rampant corruption have all echoed in the minds of Karnataka people while voting and they have upheld the Kannadiga pride by teaching a befitting lesson to BJP’s vindictive politics.”
MK Stalin greeted Congress president Mallikarjun Kharge, top leaders Sonia Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi, Siddaramaiah and DK Shivakumar on the party’s emphatic win in Karnataka. The Tamil Nadu Chief Minister spoke to them over the phone.
