Tamil Nadu BJP Issues 20-day ultimatum to fulfil poll vows

Tamil Nadu BJP president Annamalai on Tuesday spoke to the media and said, "When Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) came to power, they said that the price of petrol and diesel will be reduced by Rs 5 & Rs 4. This promise was made one year back. BJP government had reduced the fuel price twice. But DMK govt in Tamil Nadu did not reduce even once."

"We demand DMK reduce the price of fuel and stick to their promised prices. We are giving 20 days more to implement that decision. If they don’t reduce the price of fuel we will do Satyagrah and show massive strength in all districts. We will march to the secretariat if DMK refuses to reduce the price of fuel," Tamil Nadu BJP president added.

Annamalai further added, “We are only asking to fulfil your promise. We are not asking anything else."
