New Delhi, Jun 14: After Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalithaa, the main opposition party Bharatiya Janata Party has joined the posse criticising Union Home Minister P Chidambaram. BJP spokesperson Prakash Javadekar on Tuesday, Jun 14 demanded resignation from Chidambaram and Textile Minister Dayanidhi Maran.

It seems that to improve its alliance power ahead of the 2014 Lok Sabha election, BJP is very much keen to please the Tamil Nadu chief minister. When Jayalalithaa on Tuesday hurled her attack on Chidambaram stating, "Chidambaram lost the election in 2009, AIADMK candidate won, the case is in court. There is no softening in the stand," BJP's Javadekar also joined the debate.

Criticising Chidambaram, Javadekar tried to give explanation for his comment on the home minister. "Chidambaram does not have a right to be in office for two reasons. His involvement in 2G & unable to solve the Naxal issue," said the BJP leader.

The BJP spokesperson also said, "If truly Congress wanted to do something against corruption, why is Maran still in power? Want to ask the Prime Minister that what else evidence do they require?"

Meanwhile, the Home Minister showed his reaction over Jayalalithaa's accusation. Chidambaram said, "Miss Jayalalithaa, Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu has the habit of starting on the wrong foot. I have learnt that she has made a statement questioning my election to the Lok Sabha in 2009. She knows that her candidate Sri Raja Kannappan has filed an election petition in Madras High Court which is pending since September 2009. Her statement is therefore gross contempt of court. She has always had utter contempt of court proceedings and hence a statement today is not at all surprising."
