BJP president JP Nadda has said that the divisive forces are being sheltered in Tamil Nadu and the State government and political parties should be on alert to ensure that these forces do not get strength in Tamil Nadu.
He also targeted the DMK saying it has been inciting the feelings against the national spirit. “We should be alert and active in giving a befitting reply to such people,” who are working against the interests of the country, said Nadda while addressing the BJP state executive committee meeting through video conference.
Referring to Karuppar Koottam’s controversial video against Lord Muruga, he said the state unit of the party represented the nationalist feelings by protesting peacefully and enlightening the people of the state on the threat the outfit posed to society. The state’s reluctance to take swift action against Karuppar Koottam functionaries has not gone down well with the BJP leadership.
“There are people who are working against the interest of the nation and they are being provided shelter in Tamil Nadu. I would like to certainly specify here that the administration and the political parties should be on an alert to see to it that divisive forces do not get strength in Tamil Nadu.
We have to give a befitting reply to such forces which have been working in the direction which are not in the interest of the nation,” Nadda said.
The BJP president said, “We all know that DMK has always been inciting the feelings against the national spirit and they have been anti-development by coming out with issues which are not in the interest of the nation.”
“We can say that in Tamil Nadu, DMK has become a sheltering ground for people who are not working in interests of the nation. We have to be alert, active and see to it that we are able to give a befitting reply to such people,” he added.
