Responding to a post on X (formerly Twitter), by Chief Minister MK Stalin, in which he urged the Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) cadre to ask questions on Manipur violence, Adani and the CAG report as Prime Minister Narendra Modi was silent on issues facing the common man and the Cabinet was focussing on Sanatana Dharma by "spreading false narratives", Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) state president K Annamalai said that the BJP too was waiting for his answers on a number of issues like BGR Energy scam, nutrition kit scam, transport scam etc.
Chief Minister Stalin had posted, "While the Prime Minister remains silent on everyday issues impacting the common man, his cabinet focuses on #SanatanaDharma by spreading false narratives and fuelling it with support from a few media outlets.
"I urge our DMK leaders and cadre not to react to such diversion tactics and to continue posing questions to the BJP on #ManipurViolence, #AdaniHindenburg, a whopping 7.50 lakh crore rupees flagged in the #CAGreport, and other pressing issues, along with highlighting 9-year failures of the BJP. We will keep on posing questions, and so will #INDIA."
Annamalai responded saying, "Thiru @mkstalin, to begin with, we still wait for your answers on
"1. BGR Energy Scam 2. Nutrition Kit Scam 3. Transformer Supply Scam 4. CMRL Scam 5. ETL Infra Scam 6. Transport Scam 7. Noble Steels Scam 8. TNMSC Scam 9. HR&CE Scam & many more
"11 of your sitting ministers have corruption cases pending on them. One of your ministers without portfolio is in prison for the Cash for Job Scam.
"The attack on Hindu Dharma by your son and your party men is a diversion to the above scams & we kindly request you stop embarrassing yourself by misquoting the CAG report just by relying on a piece of paper in your hand."
While the allegations about the CMRL scam, ETL Infra scam, Transport scam, Noble Steels scam and TNMSC scam were made in the DMK Files part 1 and DMK Files part 2 released by Annamalai, the allegations about the transformer supply scam were made by Arappor Iyakkam, an NGO.
Minister Senthil Balaji, who is currently in jail for his alleged role in the cash-for-jobs scam during his tenure as Transport minister is also alleged to be part of the transformer supply scam.
