Chennai: DMK chief M K Stalin lashed out at Prime Minister Narendra Modi Wednesday, saying he did not like socialism, democracy and secularism and also took potshots at his foreign trips, describing him as the “non-resident prime minister”.
Stalin, who has sharpened his attack against the Bharatiya Janata Party-led regime at the Centre ever since he took over the reigns of the Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) in August, targeted the prime minister while addressing a wedding event here.
“Modi does not like socialism, democracy and secularism. His thoughts are about (industrialists) Adani and Ambani. We have heard about a non-resident Indian, but Modi is the non-resident prime minister,” he said.
The DMK chief said he would have not been bothered about Modi’s “84 foreign trips”, had they “fetched results and brought honour for the nation”.
However, it had only led to an expenditure running into crores of rupees, he said.
