Continuing its tirade against the ruling AIADMK and the opposition DMK, the BJP lashed out at the state government for claiming credit to the subsidised schemes while questioning DMK treasurer M.K. Stalin’s silence on the granite scam.
The party took strong exception to the alleged “silence” of Mr Stalin on the granite scam that rocked the state, during his election campaign in Madurai. The BJP also questioned the double standards of the DMK’s first family on Hindu religion. The saffron party launched the scathing attack on both the Dravidian majors with renewed vigor on its social media.
“All our slogans and memes have been approved by our party high command and we hope to reach the young voters and those desiring non-corrupt governance, through our campaign in Tamil,” a senior BJP leader said.
The campaign will be intensified in the coming days and in addition the party would also promote its candidates on Twitter and Facebook, he added.
The party is extensively using the speeches of its national chief Amit Shah and Union Minister Prakash Javadekar in targeting the AIADMK. It ridiculed the ruling AIADMK government for not giving the due credit to the Narendra Modi government for the successful implementation of the subsidised schemes, especially the free rice scheme.
“The response to our social media campaign from the public has been encouraging. Apart from our party members, our sites have been attracting scores of likeminded persons,” a senior leader said about the response to
the party’s official Twitter and Facebook accounts.
