Ever since Article 370 was abrogated in Jammu and Kashmir and two new Union Territories (J&k and Ladakh) were created by the ruling BJP, a few opposition parties went up in arms.
And DMK led by MK Stalin was very vocal from day one. He also convened all-party meet in Chennai on the issue and announced holding protest in Delhi tomorrow. Interestingly this has been reported in Radio Pakistan too.
They tweeted, “India: Third largest political party in 2019 election, DMK, announces to protest against @narendramodi Govt’s decision of scraping of special status of Jammu & Kashmir #OccupiedKashmir #KashmirDispute #KashmirBleeds #StandWithKashmiris #KashmirWantsFreedom.”
Already called as anti-national by BJP leaders, Stalin is facing the heat over Radio Pakistan’s act. State Minister Rajenthira Balaji had said that Home Ministry is preparing a list of anti-nationals in the country and DMK will top it.
Also, remarks by DMK spokesman Saravanan said during a channel discussion that Jammu & Kashmir was not an integral part of India has put him at the receiving end. This has also put DMK in an unenviable situation. However, DMK leader Stalin has made it clear many times that his party was for a separate Dravidian nation incorporating Tamil Nadu.
“It is there in the DMK constitution and it is a live issue,” Stalin had said many times since 2018.
