CHENNAI: In what will be his first official trip to Tamil Nadu after taking over as the BJP’s national president, Amit Shah will pay a two-day visit to the State from December 20.

Briefing mediapersons here on Friday, TN BJP president Dr Tamilisai Soundararajan and national secretary P Muralidhar Rao said the objective of Shah’s visit was to review the membership campaign undertaken by the State unit and assess its election preparedness. Besides interacting with the State leaders and party workers, he would also address a public meeting.

Last month, Shah was in the city for a day, but party sources had described it as a “strictly personal visit.” The BJP national president had then brought his sister for treatment at a leading eye hospital and refrained from meeting any party leader.          

Tamilisai also said the BJP would hold a day-long seminar on ‘Indo-Sri Lankan Relations’ on December 7.

At the morning session, experts would explain scientific methods of fishing and address all issues and problems faced by fishermen. Representatives of fishermen associations and the five fishermen, released by Sri Lanka after being sentenced to death, were expected to attend.

In the afternoon session, Muralidhar Rao would speak on the India-Sri Lankan relations.
