Chennai, July 7(BPNS)
Former Chief Minister and Coordinator of AIADMK, O Panneerselvam said that the alliance with the BJP would continue and that there was no reason as to why the relationship should not continue. In a statement on Wednesday, O Panneerselvam said that the alliance would continue, “Considering the interests of the nation and also the welfare of Tamil Nadu.”
Panneerselvam said, “We have full faith in the BJP and Prime minister, Narendra Modi” and added that there were no second opinions regarding the relationship between BJP and AIADMK.
The senior AIADMK leader came out with the statement after the open public speech of former minister and party Villupuram district secretary, C.Ve.Shanmugham that the alliance with the BJP was the reason for the loss of AIADMK in the electoral hustings of 2021. He also said that with the BJP alliance, minority communities shifted from the AIADMK camp.
Taking a cue from the public speech of C.Ve.Shanmughan, BJP Tamil Nadu state office bearers Karu Nagarajan and K.T.Raghavan came down heavily on the AIADMK leader and said that the BJP’s internal review has found that the alliance with the AIADMK had led to the BJP losing in some constituencies.
BJP leader and movie star, Khushbu Sundar also tweeted her opinion C.Ve.Shanmugham’s statement and in a tweet said,” It is the other way round”.
The statement of AIADMK supreme leader and former Chief Minister, O Panneerselvam has led to bringing together BJP and AIADMK as a split in the alliance would give more strength to the DMK which neither the saffron party nor the AIADMK wanted.
