Chidambaram has lost relevance, says TN CM

August 13 2019

 Taking umbrage at former Finance Minister P. Chidambaram's remark, Tamil Nadu Chief Minister K. Palaniswami on Tuesday said the Congress leader was a burden on the Earth.

Chidambaram had said the Tamil Nadu government would watch silently even if the Centre converted the state into a Union Territory.

Speaking to the media in Salem, about 350 km from here, Palaniswami said: "There is no need to bother about his speech. For him, self-interest is important than national interest. People have rejected him. He is a burden on the Earth."

On Chidambaram's contribution to the state, the Chief Minister said, "What were the projects brought by him to Tamil Nadu, despite him being a central minister for several years. Did he offer sufficient financial assistance?"

On his upcoming US visit, Palaniswami said he would be meeting investors to attract investments to Tamil Nadu. A memorandum of understanding (MoU) would also be signed with Britain for the healthcare sector, he added.
