Amit Shah has given a target – A BJP Led Govt in tamil nadu after five year

BJP is making inroads in Tamil nadu . You don’t have to go to Tamil Nadu to see it, just a visit to BJP’s National Headquarter in Delhi will show you the glimpses of change . Everyday groups of people from Tamil nadu are visiting BJP headquarter in Delhi and meeting one leader or another . From state level Big leaders to local district level netas . Tamils are joining BJP in big numbers everyday.

Within hours of the announcement of the electoral alliance between the BJP and the AIADMK for the 2021 Assembly election, Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Saturday urged State BJP leaders and party members to work hard to ensure that the party could capture power in Tamil Nadu in the next five years.

Mr. Shah held a marathon meeting with senior party functionaries at a private hotel in Chennai. The meeting, which began after his official engagement at Kalaivanar Arangam in the evening, continued past 11 p.m.

Tamil Nadu goes to the polls in around six months and the BJP is showing immense confidence in its push to capture a substantial vote share in a state that has been ruled by Dravidian parties for decades.

Union Home Minister Amit Shah is currently on a two-day visit to the state. On Saturday, Shah arrived in Chennai where he was greeted by his party’s state leadership and leaders of ally AIADMK, including Chief Minister E.K. Palaniswami, his deputy O. Panneerselvam and senior cabinet members.

The BJP has a tough task ahead, building up the party in Tamil Nadu. But with ‘Operation Kamalam’, the party is looking at ways to crack the caste combinations and build avenues in the five states and Union territory of Puducherry in the south. South India sends 130 MPs to the Lok Sabha and in the last general election the BJP won 30 seats, largely because of the landslide in Karnataka, where it won 26 seats (along with one supported independent) and four in Telangana. In the recent bypolls, the BJP wrested Dubbak assembly seat from the ruling TRS in Telangana and took the JD(S) Vokaligga bastion in Sira for the first time in Karnataka. In July 2019, the BJP had elevated the party’s organisational secretary for south Indian states, B.L. Santosh, as national general secretary (organisation) and had given him the task of building the BJP team in south India.

Alagiri to join BJP ?

in Tamil Nadu, the BJP will be looking to Alagiri to give them a toehold in the land of the Dravidians. Alagiri apparently is contemplating two options; floating his own party, the Kalaignar DMK, or joining the BJP. In 2014, when he lost out to younger brother M.K. Stalin in the DMK succession battle, Alagiri had been keen to join hands with the BJP. But it didn’t happen. Now with the demise of his father and his ouster from the party, Alagiri may not have resources to bankroll his own party. The voices coming out of the Alagiri’s camp haven’t denied or confirmed any speculation on the Shah meeting.

After conquering Bihar, BJP is now eyeing West Bengal and Tamil Nadu. Assembly elections are due in both the states next year. Amit Shah is reaching Chennai to strengthen the party’s political base. Amit Shah will discuss with senior party leaders on various topics, along with strengthening BJP’s ‘Vetrival Yatra’.
