New Delhi: The ongoing controversy surrounding Udhayanidhi Stalin’s remarks on ‘Sanatana Dharma’ has taken a cheeky turn as Tamil Nadu BJP Chief, K Annamalai, responded to the DMK party with a witty twist. Annamalai, in a Twitter post, offered a unique expansion of the DMK abbreviation, playfully associating it with diseases. Here’s the latest development in this intriguing verbal exchange.

The ‘Dengue, Malaria, Kosu’ retort

K Annamalai, known for his candid comments, suggested a new interpretation for DMK:

D – Dengue
M – Malaria
K – Kosu (mosquito in Tamil)

He humorously quipped that if anything needed eradication in Tamil Nadu, it should be the DMK. Annamalai even predicted that people might start linking these serious diseases with the political party, highlighting the intense rivalry between the BJP and DMK.

Udhayanidhi Stalin’s controversial remarks

This exchange stems from Udhayanidhi Stalin’s recent comments comparing ‘Sanatana Dharma’ to diseases like dengue and malaria during an event in Chennai. He clarified that his intention was not to incite violence against followers of ‘Sanatana Dharma,’ but the remarks sparked a heated debate.

MK Stalin and Annamalai exchange words

K Annamalai didn’t miss the opportunity to address Tamil Nadu Chief Minister MK Stalin’s comments against Prime Minister Narendra Modi. He accused Stalin of spreading falsehoods and mentioned that both he and his son were gradually tempering their statements.

Stalin responds to criticism

In a separate statement today, MK Stalin defended his son, Udhayanidhi, against criticism, calling it a “false narrative.” He argued that the pro-BJP factions were misrepresenting his son’s words, claiming that Udhayanidhi had advocated the “genocide of people with Sanatana thoughts.”

The ongoing verbal duel between Tamil Nadu’s political heavyweights continues to escalate with clever wordplay and pointed remarks. As the controversy over ‘Sanatana Dharma’ remarks unfolds, the political landscape in the state remains charged with heated exchanges.
