Chennai, March 28 (IANS) Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Edappadi K. Palaniswami broke into tears while addressing a public programme at Tiruvottiyur on Sunday and slammed DMK leader and former Union Minister A Raja for making remarks on his mother.
Palaniswami said that the manner in which A Raja spoke was disgusting and added that the attack was owing to a common man like him becoming the Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu.
Palaniswami asked, “If a Chief Minister is being disrespected in such a manner, then what will happen to common man if such people come to the power.”
The Chief Minister said that it is not only about his mother, rather every mother and a lesson must be taught to those who speak filthy about women and motherhood.
Palaniswami said, “My mother is no more now, she was born in a village and was a farmer who worked day and night for survival and such statements on her are highly disgusting.”
