BJP to take advantage of 'Modi wave' in Tamil Nadu LS polls


Chennai, March 21: After locking in a six-party alliance for the Lok Sabha election in Tamil Nadu scheduled for April 24, the BJP aims at utilising 'Modi wave' in the state and will soon finalise a strategy in this direction.

"We will hold a meeting on March 24 in which our General Secretary P Muralidhar Rao will participate. We will be deciding on holding Modi's public rallies in Tamil Nadu in consultation with allies," state unit BJP president Pon. Radhakrishnan told PTI. BJP, which drew a blank in the last two parliamentary elections in Tamil Nadu, hopes to reverse the trend this time around, seeking to cash in on the 'Modi wave.'

The BJP is confident of a good show in Coimbatore, Kanyakumari & Nilgiri

The party is confident of putting up a better show in constituencies like Coimbatore, Kanyakumari and Nilagiri (SC) and it intends to invite Modi to address rallies, possibly in all these or at least one of these constituencies.

The Gujarat Chief Minister's two public rallies in September last at Tiruchirappalli and February this year here, had drawn impressive turnouts, quite uncharacteristic for a BJP leader in the state. BJP had sealed its seat-sharing agreement with DMDK, PMK, MDMK, IJK and KMDK on Thursday. It also has the support of 39 small outfits.
