PM Modi ensured safety of Tamil minorities in Sri Lanka: J P Nadda

Ahead of upcoming Assembly elections in Tamil Nadu, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) National President J P Nadda attended a public meeting at Modakurichi, Erode on April 3 and said Prime Minister Narendra Modi is the first PM who visited Jaffna and ensured safety of Tamil Nadu minorities. "Modi Ji is the first PM to visit Jaffna in Sri Lanka. He visited bombarded houses, got them reconstructed. He also sent EAM S Jaishankar to Sri Lanka and ensured that Tamil minorities were safe. While Stalin never condemned Karuppar Koottam," said Nadda. "PM Modi has brought Tamil Nadu in the mainstream. In the 13th Finance Commission, Tamil Nadu got only Rs 94,000 crores. While in the 14th Finance Commission under PM Modi, the state got Rs 5.42 lakh crores, which was 4.5 times more," he said. "11 medical colleges have been given to Tamil Nadu, the highest number in the nation is given to Tamil Nadu," he added.
