DMK mocks Governor Tamilisai’s ‘valour’
CHENNAI: The ruling DMK on Wednesday said Telangana Governor Tamilisai Soundararajan is naive and made fun of her ‘valour’ talk. The party sought to know if it was “courageous to flee from Telangana out of fear and defend herself in Tamil Nadu.”
Referring to her comment that she is not shaken by anything and that she inherited the hoary Tamil tradition of valorous Tamil women, the ruling party organ ‘Murasoli’ wondered “what kind of bravery” it was to be fearful and run away from Telangana and make claims of being brave here.
Tamilisai, reacting to Murasoli’s tirade on September 12, against Governors on a confrontation mode with elected governments had asserted that she was never insulted.
“I was never insulted. I am astonished about how someone in Tamil Nadu can rejoice if their sister is disrespected in another state. It is not the right frame of mind,” she had said after the write-up appeared in Murasoli. To this remark of the Telangana Governor, the DMK mouthpiece on Wednesday said it did not say that she was humiliated in Hyderabad.
Quoting media reports and citing video footage available on YouTube in this connection, the DMK daily wondered if she denied using a word, which denoted that she was “humiliated”.
