Amit Shah challenges DMK, Congress for debate over development in Tamil Nadu

After inaugurating various development projects in Tamil Nadu, Home Minister Amit Shah on November 21 said that the party is ready to debate with Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) and Congress over development in the state.

He said, "Sometimes I heard DMK leaders speaking of injustice done to Tamil Nadu.

DMK and Congress were at the Centre for 10 years.

We are ready for a debate on whether Tamil Nadu got more help in those 10 years or during the tenure of our govt." "With all humility, we state that the schemes and funds provided to Tamil Nadu by the Central govt are not meant for help but it is the right of Tamil Nadu that were not being given to it but Modi ji ensured that now Tamil Nadu gets its rights," he added.

AIMIM leader Asaduddin Owaisi has hit back at BJP leader Tejasvi Surya who said likened him to Jinnah and accused him of spreading rabid Islamism and allowing Rohingya Muslims to settle in Hyderabad.
