Chennai: Tamil Nadu BJP president K Annamalai on Tuesday revealed that the saffron party is not in the mood to be an ally of the DMK in future elections. The ideology of both parties is totally different.
He was answering the queries of media persons following reports about the eruption of a recently developed relationship between Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Chief Minister M K Stalin during the inauguration of the 44th Chess Olympiad in Chennai on July 28.
“DMK senior leaders try to give the air of a separate Tamil Nadu.” They discussed a separate Tamil Nadu with the chief minister on the dais, which is against the ideology of the BJP and the beliefs of the party cadres. Hence, the paths of the BJP and DMK are different. I am saying this in my capacity as BJP state president. The national leadership also has the same view amidst the alliance, “said Annamalai.
A day after the PM left for Delhi, Stalin lashed out at the Centre, saying that the BJP has been trying to run parallel governments in states using governors.
Annamalai said the BJP is not dependent on other parties to win elections; the party has the capacity to win 370 seats alone in the 2024 Lok Sabha polls. He further added that we are growing strong in Tamil Nadu as well.
He said the BJP shakes its hands with those parties who believe in nationalism so the alliance with the AIADMK will continue in Tamil Nadu.
He distributed national flags among the people at the party office to hoist the ‘Tricolour’ in their houses on the occasion of the nation’s 75th Independence Day.
