In a big setback to the BJP ahead of the 2024 Lok Sabha elections, the AIADMK on Monday announced officially to end all ties with the ruling party at the Centre and exiting the NDA.
The decision was taken during an AIADMK meeting chaired by General Secretary Edappadi K Palaniswami with key office-bearers, including the district secretaries and MLAs to discuss ties with the BJP.
The party’s high-level meeting adopted a unanimous resolution criticising the BJP TN unit for deliberately attacking AIADMK icons and ideology.
“The state leadership of the BJP has been continuously making unnecessary remarks on our former leaders, our general secretary EPS and our cadres for the past one year. In today’s meeting, this resolution was passed unanimously,” said the AIADMK.
Celebrations took place outside AIADMK headquarters in Chennai following the party’s decision to sever ties with the BJP.
