Mumbai: AIADMK announced today that the alliance with BJP will continue for the 2021 assembly elections. The party’s coordinator and deputy CM O Panneerselvam made the announcement at a function organized by Home Minister and BJP’s Chief Election Strategist Amit Shah.
After a gap of one year, Home Minister Amit Shah arrived in Chennai today. The Home Minister met Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Edappadi K. Palaniswami and Deputy CM O. Panneerselvam.
“In the elections to be held in the future, the victorious alliance of AIADMK-BJP will continue,” Panneerselvam announced at a government function.
The announcement by Panneerselvam is significant as it is amid speculation that the AIADMK and the BJP may elect differently and contest the 2021 election. The BJP’s Tamil Nadu unit has been at loggerheads with the state government over its denial of permission for the Vetrivel trip.
