Tears into DMK over Chinese flag on ISRO ad

Tirunelveli: Prime Minister Narendra Modi lambasted the DMK for its reckless behavior on issues of national importance and accused it of ‘glorifying’ China and insulting Indian scientists.

Calling Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) leaders ‘blind’, Modi slammed Tamil Nadu’s ruling party over a state minister’s ad for a new Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) spaceport featuring an image of a rocket with the Chinese flag symbol.

The poster purportedly displayed a Chinese missile, along with pictures of CM Stalin and Prime Minister.
