Tamil Nadu Chief Minister K Palaniswami on Tuesday, August 13, said that the veteran Congress leader P Chidambaran was “only a burden” on the earth.
The chief minister, according to a PTI report was responding to Chidambaram’s criticism of AIADMK. Chidambaram had reportedly said that in case the Centre decided to make Tamil Nadu a union territory like it has done with Jammu and Kashmir, the ruling party – AIADMK would not resist the move.

“What schemes had he brought? How long was he the Union Minister? What is the use to the country… (chidambaram) is only a burden on the earth, ” the chief minister was quoted as saying by PTI.
