While addressing the students at Stella Maris College in Chennai, Congress Persident Rahul Gandhi said “There is an ideological battle in the country today and they are sharply divided. One ideology is a unifying one that believes, the country should not be dominated by any one idea. No state should feel oppressed”.

Law should apply to everybody equally. PM Modi has his name in govt documents which say that he is directly responsible for negotiating parallelly with Dassault on Rafale deal. Investigate everybody: Rahul Gandhi. You can’t have a negative atmosphere in the country and expect economic growth. Economic growth is directly related to the mood of the country. We will move the country to a place where people feel empowered and happy, he added.

How many times have you seen the PM of India standing here like this, being open to any question from anybody? Why doesn’t the PM have the guts to come and stand in front of 3000 women and be questioned by them? : Rahul Gandhi

We have decided to re-name the Chennai Central Station after the great MGR: PM Modi

  • I salute this land of Kancheepuram. The wise Kalidas called this land Nagareshu Kanchi – the best among cities. Today, the Member of Parliament from Kashi has come to Kanchi.
  • I am happy to have inaugurated a statue of the great son of soil Bharat Ratna MGR a short while ago. MGR is one of the most respected icons of India. He ruled the film screen and the hearts of the people.
  • MGR worked extensively for the downtrodden. His social welfare schemes gave strength to the fight against poverty.
  • I am happy to share two things with you. We have decided to re-name the Chennai Central Station after the great MGR. We are also seriously thinking about ensuring that flights to and from Tamil Nadu have in-flight announcements in Tamil language.
  • Congress also insults strong regional leaders. The people of Tamil Nadu will never forget how one family insulted K. Kamaraj.
  • What was Kamaraj Ji’s crime? His crime was that he spoke for the people and for democracy. He challenged the corrupt and dictator-like practices of one family. Because of that, he was insulted again and again.
  • The democratic elected Government of MGR was dismissed by the imposers of the Emergency. Just because of political differences.
  • Congress imposed Article 356 many many times, out of which fifty governments were dismissed by Indira Ji herself. Even the DMK has been the victim of Congress hatred for regional aspirations. But for DMK, opportunism has prevailed over values.
  • Modi hatred among the opposition is reaching new levels daily. They have a competition – who will abuse Modi most. Someone will abuse me. Then someone will mock my poverty. Then someone will abuse my family. Then someone will abuse my lower caste origins.
  • Now, one Congress leader talks of killing Modi. But, I want to tell them: I am not bothered about their threats and abuses. I am here to do my work.

Dr Subramanian Swamy on the Ram Temple issue

All my research put together on the Ram Mandir issue leads me to one clear conclusion : Namo Govt needs no one’s permission including SC for giving 67.03 acres of undisputed land to start building the temple. His law advisers have misled him that he cannot.

Former Finance Minister P Chidambaram on the Rafale Deal

@PChidambaram_IN Tweeted :

The Rafale deal is unravelling faster than the government thought.

First, it was the loading of the India Specific Enhancement costs on 36 aircraft instead of 126 aircraft giving a bonanza to Dassault.

Then it was the revelation that ‘parallel negotiations’ were being carried on by PMO undermining the efforts of the Indian Negotiating Team.

Now it is revealed that crucial changes were made to the clauses in the standard Defence Procurement Procedure.

No sovereign guarantee, no bank guarantee, no escrow account, yet a huge amount was paid as advance.

No penalty clause for undue influence, no clause against agency commission, no clause for access to suppliers’ accounts and Dassault goes laughing all the way to the bank.
