Union minister M Venkaiah Naidu today hit out at the DMK for calling the AIADMK regime a benami government of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, asking if it was right to call the DMK the benami of the Congress when it was holding office under the UPA regime. “Some say it (the AIADMK government) is a benami of the Centre. Was the earlier DMK government a benami of the Congress (during UPA regime),” the Information and Broadcasting Minister asked.
DMK working president M K Stalin had yesterday dubbed the K Palaniswami government as Modi’s “proxy regime,” and claimed that it was not fighting to secure Tamil Nadu’s rights. Talking to reporters on the sidelines of a function here, Naidu said the BJP did not have anything to gain by controlling a state government from New Delhi.
