Chennai: It could perhaps be one of a lengthiest campaigns undertaken by any political leader. Banking on the popularity wave of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and taking into account the local bodies elections, BJP state president Dr. Tamilisai Soundararajan commenced her 44-day long campaign on Wednesday to “take PM Modi's schemes to the people.”

She would address various district units and gear up her party workers to face the civic bodies polls. According to sources, the senior leader sees this as an opportunity to make inroads into the electorate post Jayalalithaa. Apart from addressing party workers at district level, she would address series of public meetings throughout the state.  

 

Earlier, before commencing her tour of the state, Dr. Tamilisai fired a barb at former Chief Minister O. Panneerselvam wondering why he had not ordered a judicial enquiry into the death of his leader and former Chief Minister J. Jayalalithaa, when he was at the helm of affairs. “Many wonder if he is now using this as a tool against the state government, as he had lost his position,” she said and demanded the ruling AIADMK to clarify on Jayalalithaa's demise.

BJP, RSS members stage agitation:  Members of the BJP and also those from the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) staged a demonstration in Tamil Nadu as part of the nation-wide stir to condemn the violence unleashed on the RSS, Sangh Parviar and Hindu outfit leaders in Kerala.  

A large number of RSS activists took part in the protest demonstration held in front of the Valluvar Kottam here, in which they raised slogans denouncing the Kerala government's fascist attitude against the Hindu organisations besides condemned Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan for failing to put an end to such attacks.

The BJP pledged its support to the agitation with Dr Tamilisai Soundararajan personally participating in the stir and condemning the attacks on Hindu activists in Kerala by CPI (M) cadres.
