Chennai: BJP president Amit Shah on Wednesday urged the people of Tamil Nadu to vote for his party, saying it could provide the alternative to existing political parties in the state.
Speaking to reporters after chairing a party meeting in Tiruchirapalli, around 340 km from here, Shah alleged that both the ruling AIADMK and the DMK were corrupt.
He said Tamil Nadu voters normally voted out a government but this time they should decide which party must come to power.
He added that the Bharatiya Janata Party could provide the "alternative" Tamil Nadu was seeking.
Tamil Nadu had not progressed because of corruption, Shah said.
He said that due to non-cooperation of the state government, central government schemes were not being implemented in Tamil Nadu.
