Rahul Gandhi hits campaign trail in Tamil Nadu, vows to defend Tamil culture.

Congress leader Rahul Gandhi kickstarted his three-day visit to Tamil Nadu ahead of the forthcoming assembly polls, which are slated to take place between April and May this year. This is the second time that the former Congress president has visited the state this month.

Attacking Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led BJP government at the Centre, Gandhi said his party was involved in a fight against a ‘particular’ ideology that believed that “only one culture, one language and one idea should rule India.” “Prime Minister Narendra Modi has “no respect” for the culture, language and people of Tamil Nadu. Modi thinks that the Tamil people, Tamil language and Tamil culture should be subservient to his ideas, his culture,” Gandhi claimed.
