Kongunadu Jananayka Katchi (KJK), a regional political party in Tamil Nadu, has merged with BJP and senior functionaries joined the party at a function in Coimbatore.
KJK president G K Nagaraj on Tuesday joined the Bharathiya Janata Party (BJP), marking the formal merger of his party with the latter.
He took his BJP membership card and party flag symbolising the merger. The merger took place in the presence of BJP leaders State Vice President Vanathi Srinivasan, S R Seghar, G K S Selvakumar, Nandakumar and others.
Nagaraj said that BJP was striving hard to take India to the path of growth and to make it corruption-free, after Atal Bihar Vajapayee became the Prime Minister, who had announced the Golden Quadrangle.
Nagaraj said that the trajectory of growth and a corruption free administration in Gujarat were the factors that propelled KJK into merger.
The objective was to have a similar government in the State in the future. Swachh Bharat, Digital India and Make in India are some of the initiatives that impressed us the most, he added.
