Chennai, April 26 (BPNS)
AIADMK general secretary and former Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu, Edappadi K. Palaniswami (EPS) will be meeting Union Home minister, Amit Shah in New Delhi today. The meeting is scheduled for 8 pm on April 26, Wednesday.
The AIADMK leader is accompanied by party state organizing secretary and former minister D. Jayakumar, former ministers and senior leaders, SP Velumani, KP Muniswamy, CVe Shandmugham and P. Thangamani.
The opposition delegation will be highlighting on the corruption charges against the present DMK government and also on the failing law and order situation in the state.
EPS, according to sources in the AIADMK will discuss on the 2024 loksabha elections as the relationship between the AIADMK and Tamil Nadu unit of the BJP is not good. The Tamil Nadu unit president of the BJP, K. Annamalai has come out against the AIADMK both overtly and covertly and AIADMK also had responded to it quite strongly.
The AIADMK delegation will also highlight on the party withdrawing its Pulikeshi Nagar assembly constituency candidate, D. Anbarasan from the Karnataka assembly election after senior BJP leaders from Delhi had requested EPS to do so. It may be recalled that the AIADMK candidate was pitted against the BJP leader, Murali in Pulikeshi Nagar constituency.
The BJP central leadership is keen that a good relationship is continued with AIADMK as without a Dravidian major, the saffron party does not stand a chance to win even a single seat in the ensuing loksabha elections.
