BJP Tamil Nadu state president,K.Annamalai said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi has a special love for former Chief Minister O.Panneerselvam(OPS)and Ramanathapuram Lok Sabha constituency.

The BJP leader was addressing a public programme on Saturday (April 13)for the campaign of OPS at Ramalinga Vilasam who is contesting as an independent candidate backed by the National Democratic Alliance (NDA).

Annamalai said that OPS was contesting the seat in place of Prime Minister Narendra Modi who could not contest from the seat.

BJP Tamil Nadu state president said ,“Prime Minister Modi has a special love for Panneerselvam and Ramanathapuram. This is the reason Prime Minister has fielded OPS from here. If a former Chief Minister enters the Parliament, he will command respect and it will immensely benefit the constituency, and Ramanathapuram will become a well-developed district,

The BJP leader said that OPS had easy access to the Prime Minister and added that this would be of help for the constituency.He also said that OPS was a leader who was trusted by late Chief Minister Jayalalithaa for his simplicity, his character and his loyalty.

Annamalai, said that OPS was also representing late Thevar leader Muthuramalinga Thevar, who divided his wealth into 16 parts and used it for the welfare of the people from backward communities.

He also came out strongly against DMK leader and Tamil Nadu ,Revenue Minister K.K.S.S.R. Ramachandran, accusing him of denigrating Muthuramalinga Thevar .

He charged that Ramachandran had said that Ramanathapuram could not grow because Thevar had a confrontation with the State government.

He said Tamil Nadu politics had witnessed many betrayals, and one was the removal of the late M. G. Ramachandran (MGR) from the DMK by its late leader M. Karunanidhi and another was the removal of OPS from the AIADMK by Edappadi K. Palaniswami.

Annamalai said “ Presently OPS is ahead of his rivals by 15percent votes but please ensure that he wins by 5 lakh votes.”

On the issue of drinking water problems faced by the local people,Annamalai said that the BJP government would allot special funds to link the Cauvery-Vaigai-Gundar rivers and permanently solve the drinking water problem of the district.
