Chennai – M Appavu, MLA of the ruling DMK party, and the Speaker of Tamil Nadu State Assembly attended a prize-giving ceremony at Saint Xavier’s College at Palayamkottai. He said that Christian institutions taught Dravidian ideology to people, gave social justice, and made available education to all. After gaining power in the State, DMK’s Chief Minister, other ministers and even many of the party members have many times acknowledged, in public, the contribution of the Christian community in DMK’s gaining power in the State. Some people felt that Appavu’s statement was also intended to appease Christians.
Constant appeasement of Christians by DMK !
From the CM to ministers, many in DMK have been repeatedly ‘revealing’ the contribution of the Christian community in bringing the party to power. In the foundation day celebrations of the Church of South India, CM MK Stalin said, “This Government was formed because of you(Christians)”. While speaking at an event organised by AG Church Dairy Development minister SM.Nasar said, “DMK has come to power thanks to the power of the prayers of Christian community”.
