Union Home Minister Amit Shah has demanded that the Tamil Nadu unit of the party strive. From this the party can gain power on its own for the next five years. Amit Shah’s statement came out after AIADMK announced it would continue its alliance with the BJP in the state’s 2021 assembly elections.
AIADMK announced this at a Chennai event. Before leaving Chennai on Sunday, Amit Shah held a marathon meeting with AIADMK and BJP leaders overnight at a private hotel. According to a senior party leader, Amit Shah has asked the BJP district superintendent and office bearers to bring the BJP to Tamil Nadu. The leader said we have now received a clear roadmap.
The leader said he (Shah) had asked him to continue with us for the next five years, strengthen the booth committees and give the party all the time. The BJP’s senior leader said the electoral alliance was once again confirmed. Since the national leaders were here, the AIADMK proposed that they were ready and welcomed their claim. However, BJP president JP Nadda will take the final decision on the alliance. The leader said the earlier alliance was good for us. It is very quick and premature.
At the same time, one of the AIADMK leaders said they were not aware of the declaration of an alliance on Saturday. However, Amit Shah did not say anything publicly about the alliance. He, however, said the Narendra Modi-led Center would support the state government. Amit Shah, who arrived in Tamil Nadu, first met Chief Minister K Palaniswamy and Deputy CM O Panneerselvam. This was followed by a meeting with BJP officials and new members.
