All India Congress Commitee vice president Rahul Gandhi has observed that DMK Leader Kalaignanar Karunanithy underscored the importance of Tamil to the whole of India, not just Tamil Nadu. We understand Tamil language and culture, it makes India stronger.
He was addressing an event held in Chennai to mark Karunanithy’s 94th birthday celebrations and diamond jubilee of his legislative career. Rahul stated that the Congress, like-minded parties and the people will not let the RSS or Prime Minister Narendra Modi "impose one idea" on the country. We will never allow silencing of more than a billion India voices. We are not going to stand and watch while they peddle their ridiculous ideas. All of us on the stage, people in the crowd, and all those watching will not let the RSS or Narendra Modi impose one idea on this country.
He went on that Karunanidhi was loved by millions of people in Tamil Nadu. Karunanidhi did not write about fantasies. He reflected the people's aspirations.
