New Delhi: Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) Chief MK Stalin on Saturday made a scathing attack on Prime Minister Narendra Modi saying the Centre is fed up of having him as the leader. Claiming to have sensed the public mood, Stalin added that while people have given up on PM Modi, they are also fed up of the Palaniswami government in the state.

On Friday, Stalin had alleged that the PM was making false promises ahead of the polls since he was jittered by the Congress party’s manifesto. Prime Minister Narendra Modi was afraid of the Congress manifesto and that was why he has begun blabbering about his false poll promises, alleged Stalin.

He went on to say that it is ironic to see PM Modi call the Congress manifesto a document of lies since he himself is a ‘liar’.
Stalin also dubbed the Modi government as ‘fascist’. While addressing an election rally yesterday, he claimed the Goods Services Tax (GST) and demonetisation had broken the backbone of the country’s economy and leading to the closure of small industries in the state, rendering thousands of workers jobless.
This isn’t the first time that Stalin attacked PM Modi. Last month too, Stalin had stated that Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s government and Edappadi K Palaniswami-led AIADMK government in Tamil Nadu will be dethroned in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections.
Stalin has also criticised the ruling All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK’s) alliance with Pattali Makkal Katchi (PMK). However, Tamil Nadu Minister RB Udayakumar had dismissed Stalin’s charge saying the electoral pact for Lok Sabha polls was made ‘only for money’ and asserted that the AIADMK and PMK came together for people’s welfare and the public in the state had welcomed the ‘winning’ combination.
