Annamalai: Tamil Nadu BJP will stand by state govt, Annamalai says | Chennai News – Times of India


TRICHY: BJP’s Tamil Nadu unit will stand by the state government on the Mekedatu dam issue for the best interest of the farmers of the state, newly appointed state president of the party K Annamalai said on Thursday.
“We are very clear about our stand on the Mekedatu issue, and we do not want to do politics over it,” he said in Trichy en route to Chennai where he will assume office on Friday.
“Even though Karnataka is a BJP-ruled state, the Tamil Nadu BJP is for the people of Tamil Nadu and it will work towards the interest of people of its state and farmers,” he said.
“Our stand is very clear when it comes to the Mekedatu issue. Tamil Nadu farmers should not face any issues and the state should get its share of the Cauvery water as stipulated by the Supreme Court,” he said.
Asked if he would play a role in resolving the issue by meeting Karnataka chief minister B S Yediyurappa, Annamalai stressed on collective steps by all parties to bring about a solution. He said two of his senior party leaders had taken part in the all-party meeting convened by the state government and they would support the state government on its decision on the Mekedatu issue.
Tamil Nadu BJP leaders would be part of the all-party delegation that would meet Union jal shakti minister Shri Gajendra Singh Shekhawat on the Mekedatu issue.
Earlier, Annamalai garlanded the statue of former chief minister K Kamaraj near Trichy central bus stand, on the late leader’s 118th birth anniversary.
