The BJP high command would decide on seeking the deputy Chief Minister’s post for the party if the AIADMK-led alliance wins a majority in the upcoming election, party State president L Murugan said on Wednesday.
While speaking to media persons at Codissia Grounds, Murugan said that alliance partners would not be attending the meeting presided by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday.
“Alliance party leaders will participate only in NDA campaigns,” he explained, adding that the Chief Minister and Deputy Chief Minister would welcome the Prime Minister at the airport.
Claiming that Coimbatore was “the BJP’s fort”, Murugan said that over one lakh people would take part in the meeting.
‘Karnataka, TN equal for us’
On Karnataka’s opposition to the linking of Cauvery and Gundar rivers, the BJP leader asserted that the river-linking project would be executed to protect the rights of the people in Tamil Nadu. “We treat the people of Tamil Nadu and Karnataka equally and do not wish to politicize the issue,” he added.
