Tamil Nadu Elections 2021: “No Indian fisherman is in Srilankan custody,” says PM Modi in Kanyakumari

PM Modi said that providing safety to the fisherman is the first priority of NDA government.

While addressing the masses in Kanyakumari, TamiI Nadu on Friday, April 2, Prime Minister Narendra Modi lashed out on the opposition and blamed them of promoting nepotism in politics. PM Modi also said that the current mood of the nation is clearly against politics of nepotism and entitlement.

“While our focus is development, the opposition has reduced itself to a dynasty club. All they want is to secure the position of their own children and grandchildren. They are not bothered about your sons and daughter,” PM Modi said in Kanyakumari.

PM Modi in his rally also targeted DMK leaders and said that they are feeling ‘suffocated’ now. Modi said, “In Tamil Nadu, the situation is such that senior DMK leaders who worked soldier to soldier with Kalaignar are feeling suffocated due to the newly minted crown prince of the party. Politics doesn’t work this way,” as quoted by news agency ANI.


Further, alleging the Congress Party, PM added, “Congress has imposed Article 356 several times. Both DMK and AIADMK governments have been dismissed by the Congress. Having Congress in any coalition is having a high-handed ally who does not understand local sensibilities”.

PM Modi also raised the issue of fisherman and said that providing safety to fisherman is the first priority of NDA government. He said, “I assure the fishermen that their safety is NDA’s priority. Just a few days ago, we ensured the release of fishermen from Sri Lanka, this includes 40 fishermen and 4 boats from Tamil Nadu. Currently, no Indian fishermen in Srilankan custody”.
