Narendra Modi swearing-in: DMK MPs skip function as M.K. Stalin was not invited
By The Hindu 26-Jun-2019
DMK MPs decided to stay away since an invitation was not extended to party president M.K. Stalin. Mr. Stalin was present at the oath-taking ceremony of Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Jagan Mohan Reddy during the day.
Tamil Nadu and Kerala were the two States where the BJP failed to get a single seat in the 2019 Lok Sabha election.
The DMK-led Opposition alliance won 37 out of 38 seats that went to the polls in the State.
“We were not expecting an invitation from them and neither were we dying to attend it anyway. All parliamentarians as a norm are called for the events. Our invitation cards were dumped at the Tamil Nadu house and not sent individually to any of us,” a top DMK leader said.
Tamil Nadu Chief Minister E. Palaniswamy and actor-turned political leader Rajinikanth were frontbenchers at the ceremony.
