Although his party candidates lost deposits in 2014 Polls, Vijayakanth was given enough prominence in BJP’s Parliamentary Party meeting and even Narendra Modi showered praises on the actor’s wife Premalatha for playing active role in poll canvassing of NDA. Few days later, The entire scene got reversed!
Soon after receiving invitation for Modi’s swearing-in ceremony, Vijayakanth has left to Delhi along with his wife and brother-in-law Sudheesh. The Senior Hero, however, wasn’t happy as BJP denied MoS Berth to his brother-in-law and allotting him a seat in 3rd row instead of 1st at the oath taking venue too hurt him.
Apparently, Vijayakanth seeked the appointment of Narendra Modi and Rajnath Singh to discuss few issues like fulfilling the promises given to his party for being the alliance partner. Though he waited for few days in Delhi post the swearing-in ceremony, The actor-turned-politician didn’t receive any call from BJP top brass.
Finally, Vijayakanth, his wife and brother-in-law returned to Chennai on Thursday morning. Soon, The DMDK Chief released a press statement appealing leaders and workers to be present for party meeting on June 4th.
Sources say, BJP Leadership isn’t happy with Vijayakanth refusing to merge his party and hence he was denied appointment. Vijayakanth who feels insulted is likely to make a crucial announcement after the party meeting in the first week of June.
