Chennai, Sept 27 (BPNS)
Tamil Nadu BJP state president, K. Annamalai has postponed the Mettupalayam leg of his ‘En Mann, En Makkal’ yatra from September 28 to October 4.
This ,according to the BJP state chief is due to the request from Muslim community as the Eid-e- Milad- Un-Nabi festival procession at Mettupalayam was scheduled on September 28th.
Annamalai in a social media post said, “Our Muslim brothers and sisters will celebrate the Eid-e- Milad-Un-Nabi festival tomorrow (September 28). Considering the Eid-e-Milad-Un-Nabi procession in Mettupalayam town tomorrow and the traffic congestion caused by En Mann, En Makkal yatra, the yatra which was scheduled to be held in Mettupalayam on September 28 is postponed to October 4”.
He said that the yatra was postponed due to requests from Muslim brothers and sisters.
The BJP Tamil Nadu unit president said that he thanked the party workers in Coimbatore BJP who has accepted the request and extended their support.
It may be noted that the BJP state president of Tamil Nadu is in a sticky wicket after the most prominent alliance partner of the saffron party of the state, the AIADMK has broken its alliance with the BJP and NDA. This, they have announced was due to the arrogance of Annamalai and the insult he has shrouded against Tamil leaders including former Chief Minister’s CN Annadurai and J. Jayalalithaa.
