Coimbatore defence corridor gave Tamil Nadu a new 'Identity': CM Yogi

Ahead of assembly elections in the state, UP CM and BJP Leader Yogi Adityanath held a rally in Coimbatore on March 31 and said that defence corridor gives its state a new identity and maintains its safety. "PM Modi and the then Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman established a Defence corridor in Coimbatore as a result of which Tamil Nadu's Wing Commander Abhinandan combated Pakistan when India did surgical strike on it to protect its border," the minister said. "When we look at the DMK-Congress alliance in Tamil Nadu, we find that they insult mothers and use filthy language for them. Those who can't respect women, can't have the right to come to power," he added.
