Chennai: Addressing a BJP campaign rally at Karaikal on Sunday, Union Home Minister Amit Shah said that the aim is to wipe Congress out from the country. In Congress, family rule prevails, he added.
Congress leaders and activists from all over the country are joining the BJP in droves. The Narayana Swami government focused on corruption without implementing the central government's schemes, and the Congress government fell because of its incompetence, he alleged.
Ex-MLA John Kumar, Venkateshan and Ramalingam, the brother of Speaker Sivakolunthu, had recently joined the BJP. Sivakolunthu also has submitted his resignation letter to the Lt. Governor. There are indications that he may also join the BJP.
