Stalin has gone ‘soft’ since Chidambaram’s arrest, claims Minister Jayakumar
By The Hindu 05-Sep-2019
When asked about Mr. Stalin’s criticism of the ‘one nation, one ration card’ scheme, Mr. Jayakumar said during an interaction with reporters in Chennai: “As for DMK president Stalin, since the arrest of [former Union Minister] Chidambaram, his [Mr. Stalin’s] voice has become soft. It has become a soft voice because [of the apprehension that] ‘next is you’ and so he is afraid. That’s what [BJP leader] H. Raja has said.”
He also asked whether Mr. Stalin had strongly opposed the Centre after Mr. Chidambaram’s arrest. “Since he does not want to be seen raising his voice, he has just touched that subject. We are more concerned about the State’s interests, people’s interests and consumers’ interests than them [DMK],” Mr. Jayakumar said.
