After wishing DMK supremo M Karunanidhi on his 94th birthday, Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi on Saturday flayed PM Narendra Modi and RSS saying, “We will not allow RSS and Modi to impose one idea on India… we will not stand and watch their ridiculous ideas.” In a bid to cobble the opposition together ahead of Presidential polls and the subsequent 2019 Lok Sabha elections, Rahul Gandhi addressed a public gathering where he took on the Narendra Modi-led BJP government at the Centre for its demonetisation initiative last November saying it has wrecked the economy.

He also described Karunanidhi as the voice of Tamil Nadu, as opposed to Narendra Modi’s leadership, when he said, as quoted by news agency ANI, “When Karunanidhi ji speaks, it isn’t only he speaking, when he opens mouth it is the voice of people of Tamil Nadu that he is speaking.”

President Pranab Mukherjee, Vice President Hamid Ansari and other leaders also greeted Karunanidhi on his birthday. Other leaders like Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar, Omar Abdullah, TMC’s Derek O’Brien, CPI(M)’s Sitaram Yechury, CPI’s D Raja were in Chennai to mark their respect for the senior most leader.

After being part of Congress-led UPA alliance for nine years, Karunanidhi quit in 2013. DMK leaders are celebrating its leader’s birthday as well as his diamond jubilee in Tamil Nadu Assembly.

      What a collection of fused bulbs. And all the Bhakts who shiver at the mention of nationalism and Hindu rising. Enough of out and out Muslim Christian appea t. This expired sickularism has brought these persons together and are less enthuast to wish karunanidhi a great milestone achievement than to sing ultra negative Modi song. These are cheer leaders of JNU types, award wapsi walas, separatists and scams. They are dejected, have been rejected and have since evaporated by the voters. So don't know whose happy birthday is next.

                Rahul hi is good at heart but problem is he lacks political will and leadership. This is the crux of the problem.

                  NDA is already indulging in food and Hindi fascism. NDA will pay heavily for this in 2018. Till then it is better to eat green leafy vegetables and speak only Hindi. But 2018 is long period. Hope entire country will not become BIMARU.
