Alleging that “lies and falsehood are the capital of the fascist BJP regime”, Tamil Nadu Chief Minister and DMK president M.K. Stalin said the countdown to the end of the BJP rule had begun.

During a joint press meet held on behalf of the INDIA bloc of Opposition parties in Mumbai, Mr. Stalin alleged that the past nine years of BJP rule had shown scant regard for democratic ethos, and now, it had become a threat to the very existence of democracy.

“The Modi government will go down in history for destroying democratic institutions and traditions by toppling elected governments of the Opposition. Maharashtra remains a testament to the BJP’s undermining of democracy. Dividing opposition and toppling their governments by splurging ill gotten money and unleashing agencies have become the full-time job of the BJP,” he added. (The Hindu)
