AIADMK is leading partner of NDA in TN, says Annamalai

Pointing out the outcome of the by-polls in six states, Annamalai said Congress forfeited deposit in the by-polls and lost its strongholds in Karnataka. It was an indication that the 2024 LS polls would script epilogue for several political parties.

CHENNAI: A day after AIADMK interim general secretary Edappadi K Palaniswami announced that a mega alliance would be formed under the leadership of the party, BJP state president K Annamalai endorsed it. He said there is nothing wrong in EPS’ call on mega alliance under the AIADMK leadership as it is a larger party in the State.

“AIADMK is part of the National Democractic Allaince (NDA). It is the biggest and strongest party in the State and it was a ruling party for several several years. Hence, there is no confusion on who will be leading the alliance, which is intact,” Annamalai told media person in Chennai during participating in a book release programme on Monday.

Pointing out the outcome of the by-polls in six states, Annamalai said Congress forfeited deposit in the by-polls and lost its strongholds in Karnataka. It was an indication that the 2024 LS polls would script epilogue for several political parties.

On AMMK leader TTV Dhinakaran’s call for an alliance to dethrone DMK regime, the BJP leader said it was the national leadership can only take the call on this. And, it is too early to comment on the alliance.

He criticised the ruling DMK party for its campaign against Governor R N Ravi and said it was a “drama” staged by the DMK party.

“The MPs have been asked to come to Arivalayam (DMK HQ) to sign the memorandum to test the loyalty of the MPs, including from the allies,” he said.

“It was unwanted and waste of his time. Instead, he can distribute pamphlets about his party that will fetch some votes,” he said while responding to a question on campaign of VCK leader Thol Thirumavalavan and his party cadres campaign of distribution of Manusmriti copies to public.

He further said that BJP had already made it clear that they did not accept the Manusmriti.
