Amid the explosive political fallout of DMK leader Udhayanidhi Stalin’s remarks against Sanatan Dharma, Union Law Minister Arjun Ram Meghwal on Sunday said the statements from the likes of KC Venugopal and Karti Chidambaram failed to clearly spell out or articulate the Congress’s stand on the issue.
