BJP MP and Yuva Morcha chief Tejasvi Surya on Sunday called the MK Stalin-led Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) “anti-Hindu” as he sought to promote BJP as the only party in the country that respects all regional languages of the country.

Speaking at a BJYM state convention in Salem in election-bound Tamil Nadu, he said that the DMK represents a “bad, virulent ideology which is anti-Hindu.”

“Every Tamil is a proud Hindu. This is the sacred land that has the highest number of temples in the country. Every inch of Tamil Nadu is sacred, but DMK is anti-Hindu, so we must defeat it,” reports quoted the 30-year-old MP as saying.

He further slammed the DMK saying that for it the family is the party, while for the BJP, the party is the family. Surya’s scathing attack comes weeks before Tamil Nadu is set to go for polls with the BJP tying up with senior ally AIADMK in the state.
