CHENNAI: On Friday, the first day for filing applications by aspirants for Assembly seats, the State BJP got 1,350 party cadre including Abdul Saleem, grandson of the elder brother of former President APJ Abdul Kalam. 

Enthusiastic party workers filed applications on behalf of the State BJP president Tamilisai Soundararajan, senior leaders such as L Ganesan, and Vanathi Srinivasan.

While applications were filed for Tamilisai for Radhapuram and Velacherry constituencies, applications were received for Vanathi Srinivasan for Mylapore and Salem. Some party members had filed applications for L Ganesan seeking ticket for the Mylapore constituency.

A large number of BJP workers thronged the party base here since Friday morning.  Speaking to the media, Tamilisai Soundararajan said, "The BJP is already strong in Tamil Nadu and to add more strength, we are seeking alliance.
