Congress, DMK betrayed ryots: Radhakrishnan

While speaking to the media, the minister said, in order to get favours from the ruling Congress, the DMK had been working hand in hand whenever the party ruled the state. “Congress had ruled over 40 years and DMK was in alliance with the party most of the tenure but could not form the CMB but, they have been criticising the BJP which has just come to power”, Radhakrishnan said. 
The union minister called upon the farmer associations from Tamil Nadu to demand for a white paper on who had betrayed them. “Whichever association refrains from demanding the white paper, they are turning away from their duty to the farmers”, he said.
Stating that there is no second opinion on forming theCMB, the minister said, both Congress and DMK are playing politics with the issue and their real face will be known soon. He claimed that the BJP is working on getting the due share of water from Cauvery to Tamil Nadu. However, he gave an evasive reply when scribes asked whether the BJP-led Union government is optimistic of forming CMB. “We have two and half years more and we are focused on that”, he said.
Meanwhile, Radhakrishnan ridiculed the DMK for convening an all-party meet on the Cauvery issue as they have lost credibility. Similarly, he claimed that the Congress-led Karnataka government had failed in everything and has also encouraged violence against the Tamils there.
