Modi, Rahul to be back in TN soon

Now that candidates have been announced by almost all political parties in Tamil Nadu for the Apirl 18 Lok Sabha elections, campaign activities are gaining momentum.

With state level leaders already storming the streets, national leaders too are set to make a beeline to Tamil Nadu in the days to come.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Congress president Rahul Gandhi, who visited the state only recently, are set to campaign in Tamil Nadu again.

While BJP state president Tamilisai Soundararajan has confirmed the visit of Modi, senior Congress leader S Thirunavukkarasar has confirmed the electioneering of Rahul in Tamil Nadu.

A few days ago, top leaders of Tamil Nadu, including Chief Minister Edappadi K Palaniswami, Deputy Chief Minister O Panneerselvam and DMK president M K Stalin started their campaigns for Lok Sabha elections.

AIADMK coordinator and Deputy Chief Minister O Panneerselvam began his campaign in a special way – canvassing for his son P Ravindranath Kumar who is contesting from Theni parliamentary constituency.

Speaking to mediapersons, OPS said he found nothing wrong in his son contesting the elections. He argued that it cannot be equated with promoting dynasty politics as he said anyone was free to contest elections in a democracy.

Taking potshots at the DMK-Congress combine for not being able to project a Prime Minister candidate unanimously, top AIADMK leader and Chief Minister K Palaniswami said Wednesday the situation in the opposition camp was similar to a headless human body.
