Reflecting on historical symbolism, PM Modi recalled his past connection with Kanyakumari, stating, “In 1991, I began ‘Ekta Yatra’ from Kanyakumari to Kashmir. This time, I travelled from Kashmir to Kanyakumari.” He emphasized the rejection of divisive ideologies in both regions. Targeting the ruling party, the PM said, ”DMK is the enemy of the future and the culture of Tamil Nadu. Before the Ayodhya Ram temple ‘Pran Pratishtha’ ceremony, I came to Tamil Nadu and visited the prominent temples in the state. But the DMK govt tried to stop the telecast of the Ayodhya Ram temple consecration ceremony. On this Supreme Court had to reprimand the Tamil Nadu govt…They also didn’t like the installation of the Sengol in the new Parliament…It is our govt which cleared the way for the Jallikattu.”

DMK’s Record On Mistreating Women

Highlighting concerns about the treatment of women in Tamil Nadu, PM Modi criticized the ruling DMK for its conduct towards female leaders. He pointedly remarked, “Everyone remembers what the DMK leaders did to Jayalalithaa ji. Their attitude towards women has still remained the same.”
