Tamil Nadu BJP takes a dig at DMK manifesto, calls it 'bundle of lies'

Chennai: Taking a dig at the manifesto of DMK for the 16 May Tamil Nadu Assembly elections, BJP leader H Raja on Thursday described it as a "bundle of lies". It was DMK which brought in liquor culture in Tamil Nadu. But in their manifesto, they said they would bring prohibition, Raja told reporters in Chennai.

"So, it (the manifesto) is totally a bundle of lies," he said.

DMK had also not taken any steps to retrieve Katchatheevu islet, ceded to Sri Lanka by India in 1976, Raja alleged.
