JP Nadda to pep up Tamil Nadu BJP on his visit to Chennai on February 11

NEW DELHI: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) national president J P Nadda will pep up the party’s Tamil Nadu unit in facing the upcoming Lok Sabha election when he pays a day’s visit to the state on February 11.

He is likely to meet the Parliamentary Committee members in a close door meeting and assess the organisational preparedness for the poll, a senior leader said on Friday. Also, Nadda would address the party’s rally in the evening, he said.

As the party is gearing up for the Sunday rally, the police ‘denied’ permission to the BJP to take out a procession in the city citing traffic congestion. The saffron party is scouting for a venue.

Another senior leader said that the venue for the rally to be addressed by Nadda will be finalised soon.

”The national president would address the members of the Parliamentary committees which have been formed in facing the election. He is likely to suggest some strategies too,” state vice president M Chakravarthy told PTI.

Aiming to send more MPs to the Parliament from the state, Tamil Nadu BJP chief K Annamalai launched a statewide padayatra – En Mann, En Makkal (My Land, My People) – about six months ago.

The yatra, on its last leg traversing through the assembly constituencies in Chennai, will culminate in Palladam in Tiruppur district on February 25. Prime Minister Narendra Modi is set to address a rally when the yatra concludes, Annamalai had announced earlier.
