SALEM: Tamil Nadu Chief Minister K Palaniswami on Tuesday launched a blistering attack on the veteran Congress leader P Chidambaram.
The chief minister was responding to criticism of his party by Chidambaram, who had reportedly said that if the Centre decided to make Tamil Nadu a union territory as it has done in Jammu and Kashmir, the ruling AIADMK would not resist any such move.
The CM said that P Chidambaram was "only a burden" on the earth.
He added that despite being a Central Minister for long, Chidambaram had not addressed issues concerning the state including the Cauvery river water dispute.
"What schemes had he brought? How long was he the Union Minister? But, what is the use to the country? He is only a burden on the earth, " the chief minister said.
