Chennai, 21 November (IANS). Union Home Minister Amit Shah is on a visit to Tamil Nadu and former DMK MP K.P. Ramalingam has joined the Tamil Nadu BJP.
CT Ravi, BJP’s national general secretary and in-charge of the party’s Tamil Nadu unit, said it would not only weaken the DMK and its base, but also strengthen the BJP across the state.
In a tweet, Ravi also said, Kamal (BJP’s election symbol) is going to bloom all over Tamil Nadu after Union Home Minister Shri Amit Shah comes to Chennai today.
Please tell Ramalingam was removed from the DMK in April to speak out against the party leadership. He is the second leader of the DMK to join the BJP in recent times. Earlier, former Assembly Deputy Speaker V.P. Duraisamy left the DMK and joined the BJP.
DMK MP KK Selvam had also criticized the DMK leadership and supported the BJP.
