Madurai: BJP slammed DMK chief M Karunanidhi for his reported remarks that there was an attempt to impose Sanskrit with the support of the ruling party at the Centre.
Asked about Karunanidhi's threat to launch an anti-Sanskrit protest on the lines of the anti-Hindi agitation, BJP leader L Ganesan said both Tamil and Sanskrit were classical languages.
Both of them were born from Lord Shiva's "Udukkai" (a type of drum). Those who did not accept Lord Shiva, should not talk about Sanskrit language, he said.
He was speaking after inaugurating the BJP's "Grievance Redressal Centre" here.
He said the aim of the Centre was to ensure that the poor people get benefits from various government social welfare schemes.
