Kancheepuram: Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman on Monday accused the “Hindu-hating” DMK of misusing the Tamil Nadu police to suppress the right of Ram devotees’ right to watch the live telecast of the ‘Pran Pratishtha’ ceremony at the Ram Temple in Ayodhya.
“Tamil Nadu Police is being misused by the Government of Tamil Nadu. They are being misused by Hindu-hating DMK,” Sitharaman told reporters here.
The Union Minister earlier said that the police removed LED screens that were put up at several temples and places to watch the live telecast from Ayodhya temple of the Pran Pratishtha ceremony, conducted by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
“Can any citizen be denied the right to watch the Prime Minister? The DMK is showing its personal hatred for the Prime Minister,” the Union Minister said.
She alleged that the ruling DMK government was “suppressing” the rights of people who want to worship Lord Ram. (ANI)
