Tamil Nadu BJP president K Annamalai has hit back at DMK leader and Tamil Nadu Minister Dayanidhi Maran for his ‘joker’ at him. Annamalai said Dayanidhi Maran is ‘useless without his family’s surname’.

“If you remove this word Maran from there, he will not even get a job as anybody in any place. He is totally, totally useless without his family surname, but unfortunately, when they know they are losing, DMK will always take recourse to abuse,” K Annamalai said.

Earlier in the day, Prime Minister Narendra Modi also slammed Tamil Nadu Minister Dayanidhi Maran for calling BJP’s state president K Annamalai a “joker”.
