Minister Anitha Radhakrishnan did not participate in any of the government functions that took place in the last few days, including the opening ceremony of the priest training school at Tiruchendur Subramania Swamy Temple. When the party members inquired, the reason was given that “the minister is not well”. In fact, the Minister is said to have been affected by the concern of the notice sent by the Enforcement Directorate.
Siblings say that the minister is in despair that the enforcement department in the northern states will do the same to us.
Since it is a region where the party is strong, it is usual for the Kongu regional leaders to dominate the BJP in Tamil Nadu. State President Annamalai, many people hold important positions in the ‘Parliamentary Board’, the party’s supreme body in Delhi, called Vanathi Srinivasan. Even though she says ‘like this I will go to a big position one day’, the female administrators of Kongu Zone are unable to cope with the politics and their fellow administrators are stunned. He joined the party only through a state executive who had recently joined the DMK. A person who had won the state post in a short period of time has now acquired a powerful position in the district as well. Ammani’s next goal is to take over the position vacated by Vanathi Srinivasan.
The allegation that ‘Chief Minister is refusing to give MLA office to independent MLAs because of their support to BJP in Puducherry Assembly’ is burning among the MLAs. But Siva, who is an independent MLA from Tirunallaru constituency in Karaikal district, is in favor of the ruling NR Congress. “There is no legislative office in my constituency which gives full support to the Chief Minister. We have to meet the people of the block in temples and ponds. Where do you go to say this?” He says sadly.
Vail Corporation’s female mayor has been publicly threatened and belittled by her own party, causing controversy. During the council meeting on August 30, the deputy mayor and a zonal committee president along with some DMK councilors spoke and insulted the mayor in unison. The Deputy Mayor went a step further and tried to hold the meeting by throwing the Mayor out of the hall. District siblings say that the reason for all this audacity is the courage of the senior minister to succeed him.
