Tamil Nadu BJP unit president K Annamalai will be the co-incharge for the high-stakes polls where both the ruling party and the opposition Congress have launched intensive public outreach for the elections likely to be held in April-May.
Pradhan, a veteran organisation man of the party, has been tasked with handling several elections in the past.
A skillful politician, he will be expected to mobilise the state organisation while sorting out internal issues in the local unit to maximise efforts to retain power in the important southern state.
Announcing that Rs 100 crore will be released to the Karnataka Border Areas Development Authority before March 31, Karnataka Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai Thursday said there was an urgent need to take up development in the areas of education, industry, infrastructure, and for promoting Kannada. The CM directed the authorities concerned to prepare action plans on these fronts
