‘Current elections are important for political parties’


Senior Congress leader P Chidambaram said here on Saturday that the Bharatiya Janata Party could be prevented from entering the southern states such as Tamil Nadu and Kerala in the current general elections of the Legislative Assembly.

Talking to reporters, he said that these elections were important for all political parties, who opposed the BJP. “The Bharatiya Janata Party should not move beyond the Vindhyas. At any cost, they should not be allowed to penetrate south,” he insisted.

In Puducherry, they are doing their gimmick. In Kerala, they were trying to create confusion among voters. Thus, cadres in Tamil Nadu should be vigilant and pursue them in the electoral process. Remaining indifferent or disinterested may give them (the BJP) a place, he cautioned.

This is possible simultaneously, the senior leader said and said he would campaign in the constituencies where the BJP contested for the assembly seat. “Unfortunately, the pledged its self-respect to the BJP. There is no point in blaming it. With the support of the DMK, the party [BJP] The door to the south should be shown, ”he repeated.

For some wrong reasons, the BJP was allowed to enter and rule Karnataka. He ruled in other states in the Hindi belt. Chidambaram said, “The BJP is not a party. It is like a poisonous plant. Growing it is a dangerous event for the society and the nation.”
