PM's visits have changed political climate in TN: State BJP

The political climate in Tamil Nadu has changed after Prime Minister Narendra Modi's recent visits, state BJP president Tamilisai Soundarrajan claimed Wednesday. Referring to Modi's well-attended public meetings in Madurai and Tirupur in the last few weeks, she said the prime minister's visits led to "change of political climate" in the state ahead of the coming Lok Sabha elections.

Talking to reporters here, she also said BJP had decided to forge an alliance with friendly parties for the polls to prevent vote split. Replying to a question, she said the BJP would be ready to contest the elections on its own if all other parties in the state decided to contest alone.

Soundarrajan also claimed that the popularity of BJP had been on the rise in the state. BJP general secretary P Muralidhar Rao had Tuesday said the party was having discussions with friendly parties and would definitely have alliance for "good governance and positive development." Ruling AIADMK Deputy Co-ordinator R Vaithilingam, MP, Wednesday said the party was holding 'discreet' alliance talks with parties, including the BJP.

Modi had addressed a rally in Tirupur in western Tamil Nadu on February 10, the second such BJP event in less than a month in the state. On January 27, he addressed a party rally in Madurai after laying the foundation stone for the much-awaited AIIMS to be built at Thoppur near the temple city at a cost of Rs 1,264 crore.

The prime minister had also held a series of interactions with BJP booth level workers in the state through video conferencing facility in recent months, indicating that the party was keen on strengthening its base in the southern state..
