Central government and state governments should work together: VP Venkaiah Naidu



Vice President Mr. Venkaiah Naidu said on Saturday that the central government and state governments should work together.

Unveiling the bronze statue of former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister and DMK Chairman, the late Mr Karunanidhi, at Omandura Government Estate, Naidu said it was ‘Team India’.

“Central government and state governments should work together,” he said.

Naidu added that as states grow, the nation as a whole will grow.

Emphasizing that people from other parties are only political rivals with different ideology and not enemies.

Emphasizing that all belong to the “great country of India”, Naidu said that “politicians should respect each other and not treat leaders of other parties as enemies”.

“Mother, mother tongue and homeland are important. There is nothing wrong with learning another language. But mother tongue comes first,” he said.

According to him, there should be no imposition of one language on the people and there should be no opposition to another language either.

Naidu said Karunanidhi is an iconic leader who has put people at the center of all his actions like Farmer’s Market, Health Insurance and others.

“A multi-faceted personality, Karunanidhi made his mark in every field he was in, whether as a playwright, speaker, administrator, leader, poet, writer,” Naidu said.

It is Karunanidhi who has created a new trend in film dialogues in the world of Tamil cinema, Naidu added.

The vice president also said that during his student years, he was drawn to Karunanidhi’s speech.

Tamil Nadu Chief Minister MK Stalin and Water Resources Minister Duraimurugan also spoke at the event.
