at the Sri Ramanathaswamy temple in this island town.

Addressing a public meeting before participating in the yatra along with

Mr Annamalai and senior BJP leaders, Mr Amit Shah launched a scathing

attack on the ruling DMK and termed it as the most corrupt government

in India.

While branding both the DMK and its ally, the Congress, as corrupt, he

also questioned the continuance of Tamil Nadu Minister V.Senthilbalaji

(without portfolio) in the State Cabinet after he was arrested by the ED

in a money laundering case and now languishing in prison.

He also claimed that Chief Minister M.K.Stalin, will not accept the resignation

of Mr Balaji–even if he offered to quit–as the corruption deals will come to light.
