CHENNAI: The DMK and its ally Congress on Saturday squarely blamed the BJP for the present political impasse in Tamil Nadu.
Responding, BJP State president Tamilisai Soundararajan denied this as baseless.
In a statement here, DMK working president MK Stalin said, “At a time when various livelihood issues are affecting the people of Tamil Nadu, the BJP government at the Centre is unleashing all government agencies against the AIADMK and completely destabilising the State administration.” He said though the income tax department conducted searches and took action against Sekar Reddy and others, there was no follow-up. The BJP leader was silent about the reinstatement of former Chief Secretary P Rama Mohana Rao. He further alleged that the BJP’s hand was so apparent in the ‘selective raids’ on one faction of the AIADMK and ‘inaction’ on the corrupt activities of another.”
TNCC president S Thirunavukkarasar said, “The problems in the ruling party had its echo in government also. But all these are due to the ‘Thiruvilayadal’ of the BJP.”
He further said the BJP, with no base inTN, was involved in both splitting the AIADMK and in merging the factions.
