CHENNAI: The youth wing of the State BJP organised a protest meeting near the Chepauk stadium on Monday. Led by Vinoj Selvam, the activists demanded the closure of Tasmac units, conduct of local body elections and upgrading the State Board syllabus to match the CBSE standard.The protest meet was attended by Poonam Mahajan, national president of the Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha, the BJP’s youth wing.Addressing hundreds of youth cadre from Chennai and nine districts in the State, she asked them to enter the political fray and assume responsibilities in local bodies and serve the community.


“The sun is setting and the leaves are falling. It is time for the lotus to bloom,” she said.
The daughter of the late BJP leader Pramod Mahajan harped on Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s intervention to secure the release of Tamil fisherman from Sri Lankan custody. That, she said, was an indication of how much the BJP cared for the people of Tamil Nadu and took pride in its identity.


C P Radhakrishan, BJP leader from Coimbatore, demanded the shutdown of Tasmac units in the State and blamed alcohol for leaving people satisfied with freebies distributed by the Dravidian parties.
The party’s youth cadre, however, were disappointed when the proposed two-km protest march to the legislative Assembly after the meeting was cancelled.The protest was also attended by State BJP president, Tamilisai Soundararajan who took forward the demands of the youth wing to Chief Minister Edappadi K Palaniswami.
