BJP leader Annamalai to TN govt: Leave behind political vendetta and focus on preventing possible Covid third wave | Chennai News – Times of India


TUTICORIN: Stating that the DMK government in Tamil Nadu is focusing on political vendetta in the form of reopening the Kodanad estate murder cases, BJP state president K Annamalai on Friday said the government should shift its focus to curtailing the spread of a possible third wave of Covid-19.
“The government should put an end to its political vendetta and raiding (former AIADMK ministers) and should focus on increasing the Covid vaccination cover, giving good governance to the people and fulfilling their poll promises,” he said.
Annamalai was talking to reporters at Tuticorin airport before taking part in various events in Tirunelveli on Friday.
Commenting on the 100 days of the DMK rule in the state, he said that it was a mixture of “little sweetness and a lot of bitterness and hotness.” According to him, the little sweetness is the good coordination they had with the Centre to fight the second wave of Covid-19 and in bringing down the cases. Poll promises remaining unfulfilled were among the bitterness he listed out against the state government.
The BJP leader accused the DMK of lot of unnecessary comments starting with mentioning the BJP government at the Centre as ‘Union government’. He also accused the DMK of targeting and arresting the BJP cadre, especially those in the IT wing who had made posts (in social media) and active functionaries. “We took a lot of efforts to bring them out,” he added.
He justified the BJP supporting the AIADMK MLAs in walking out of the assembly over the Kodanad estate case. “There is nothing wrong in what the AIADMK MLAs did. Taking up the case clearly looks like political vendetta,” he said.
Annamalai was accompanied by Union minister of state for fisheries, animal husbandry and dairying and information and broadcasting L Murugan and other senior party functionaries.
