In swipe at Congress and DMK, Shah dubs them ‘2G,3G, 4G’ parties

Vellore (TN):¬†Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Sunday took a swipe at the Congress and DMK over dynasty politicAdd News and alleged corruption, calling them “2G, 3G, 4G” parties and said the time has come in Tamil Nadu to throw away these and give the power to a “son of the soil”.

Addressing a public meeting here to highlight the nine years of the BJP-led NDA government’s achievements, he also lashed out at the two opposition parties at the Centre for opposing the abrogation of Article 370 and lauded Prime Minister Narendra Modi for “uniting Kashmir” with India by a stroke of the pen.

“Congress and DMK are 2G, 3G, 4G parties. I am not talking about the 2G (spectrum allocation scam). 2G means two generations, 3G means three generations and 4G means four generations,” he said.

“The Maran family (of the DMK) is doing corruption for two generations. The Karunanidhi family is doing corruption for three generations. The Gandhi family is 4G. Rahul Gandhi is fourth generation and for four generations they are enjoying power,” Shah said attacking the two parties.

He said the time has come to “throw out 2G, 3G, 4G and give the power in Tamil Nadu to a son of the soil.”.

Asking the crowd if Article 370 should have been removed or not and “if Kashmir is ours or not,” he said both Congress and DMK opposed the abrogation of the Article which gave Jammu and Kashmir a special status.

“Both these parties — Congress and DMK — were against its abrogation. With one stroke of pen on August 5, 2019, Prime Minister Narendra Modi ended Article 370 and united Kashmir with India,” Shah added.

Earlier in the day, Shah attended a meeting of the BJP’s Tamil Nadu leaders, including its state president K Annamalai, in Chennai.
