SALEM: Prime Minister Narendra Modi sought to play the Hindutva card in Tamil Nadu alleging that DMK and Congress were “insulting” Hinduism whenever they got a chance but chose not to speak about other religions.

Intensifying his attack on the INDIA bloc for Congress leader Rahul Gandhi’s “Shakti” remark, Modi said in Salem on Tuesday that the opposition front had launched a campaign to end “Shakti.”

“But only those who set out to eradicate Shakti of Hindu dharma will get destroyed.

Their end will begin on April 19,’’ he said referring to the polling date in Tamil Nadu.

Modi was speaking at a public meeting in Salem, his first address after the election notification in TN. This was also the first meeting where Modi shares dais with all the alliance leaders including PMK founder S Ramadoss, his son and party president Anbumani Ramadoss, former AIADMK coordinator O Panneerselvam, AMMK founder T T V Dhinakaran and Tamil Maanila Congress president G K Vasan.
