Chief Minister Edappadi K Palaniswami today said Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah have already explained about the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA).
Speaking to mediapersons at the Salem airport today, he said, ' The act does not affect anyone who are residing in India. Former Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa had already asked for dual citizenship for Lankan Tamils. I have also requested the same with Modi. Benefits of the State Government is also extended to the refugees from Sri Lanka.'
Palaniswami also questioned what the DMK did for the Lankan Tamils when they were sharing power in the Centre. DMK president M K Stalin has been doing false propagation and has been spewing hatred against the AIADMK. Even during a protest yesterday he had accused AIADMK of betraying Tamils. However, it was former Chief Minister M Karunanidhi and Stalin who were the reasons behind the mass murder of Lankan Tamils,' he added.
