BJP on protest mode

bjpChennai: BJP’s Tamil Nadu unit on Saturday asked partymen to stage protests all over the state on November 13 to condemn what it called an attempt on senior leader LK Advani’s life while commencing the second leg of his anti-corruption yatra from Madurai last month.

In a statement, unit President Pon Radhakrishnan described the detection of a crude bomb near Madurai on the yatra route as a providential escape for the leader.”The protest is to condemn the anti-nationalist forces’ attempt on Advani’s life,” he said. A powerful pipe bomb was unearthed from under a bridge and defused on October 27 at Alampatti village, about 30 km from Madurai, on the route of Advani’s yatra.

The party had decided to celebrate Advani’s 85th birthday as ‘anti-corruption week’ for a week from November 8 in the state. Seminars and public meetings would be held during the week, demanding that the menace be eradicated fully from society, he said.
