AIADMK Ends Alliance with BJP Over Annamalai’s Controversial Remarks

Chennai: The AIADMK ended its alliance with the BJP on Monday, September 25, 2023, following a meeting at the party’s headquarters in Tamil Nadu. The decision came after BJP Tamil Nadu chief K Annamalai made controversial remarks about former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister and revered Dravidian figure, CN Annadurai.

Annamalai alleged that Annadurai had disrespected Hinduism during an event in Madurai back in 1956 and had to apologize to escape. His remarks sparked outrage among AIADMK cadres and leaders, who accused him of insulting Dravidian icons and trying to divide the state on religious lines.

The AIADMK’s decision to end its alliance with the BJP is a significant development in the political landscape of Tamil Nadu. The two parties have been allies for over a decade, and the AIADMK’s move signals a growing rift between the Dravidian parties and the BJP.
