Karunanidhi's daughter and DMK MP Kanimozhi has visited Kadapa to extend solidarity towards the indefinite hunger strike by TDP MP CM Ramesh and TDP leader B Tech Ravi.
Kanimozhi said TDP has been fighting for the Kadapa steel plant and hailed CM Ramesh and Chandrababu Naidu for their relentless fight for AP. Kanimozhi said she has come to Kadapa representing her father Karunanidhi and brother Stalin who are also extending their support for the fast-unto-death hunger strike of TDP leaders. She said Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh states are like brothers and would always support one another. She said the people of AP and Tamil Nadu should fight jointly for their problems.
Hitting out at BJP, Kanimozhi said the Saffron party is adopting an anti-national approach which is hugely affecting the states, particularly non-ruling BJP states. She said BJP is conspiring against the states in which it is not in ruling.
Hindu, Hindi and Hindusthan are the only three things matter to BJP, said Kanimozhi. She said the people of Tamil Nadu have been opposing the BJP's policies. Kanimozhi even recalled the recent Tuticorin incident which has claimed over 30 lives. She said they (BJP and AIADMK combine) have shot over 30 people publicly who were protesting against the sterlite plant to curb the pollution.
Kanimozhi blamed Modi for not responding on Rajya Sabha MP CM Ramesh's indefinite hunger strike demanding Kadapa steel plant which crossed over 1 week. She said the family members of Ramesh and Ravi are worrying and hence, she demanded PM Modi to respond on their genuine demands immediately.
Hailing Chandrababu as a "True Leader", Kanimozhi said Naidu has been fighting against all odds with composed nature. Throughout Kanimozhi's speech right from the start to end has got good reception from the locals. Thus, Kanimozhi's Kadapa speech has won the hearts.
