Tamil Nadu BJP President L Murugan was inducted into Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Union Council of Ministers on Wednesday evening. In fact, in the recently held assembly elections in Tamil Nadu, the BJP was successful in winning four seats after two decades. In such a situation, L Murugan has been given a place in the Union Council of Ministers on Wednesday as a reward for this. It is believed that due to the good performance, Murugan has been included in his cabinet by PM Modi. Because when Murugan became the BJP’s Tamil Nadu unit president in March 2020, he hardly had a year to prepare for the assembly elections. Despite this, his performance was excellent.
It was no easy task for Murugan to lead a Hindutva party with deep roots in the Dravidian ideology in Tamil Nadu, but unlike his predecessors, he did not hesitate to adopt the ‘soft Dravidian ideology’ when needed and with this He also maintained the nationalism of his party. On Murugan’s place in the Union Council of Ministers, political analyst Sumanth Raman said that the BJP state chief worked hard, due to which the party won four assembly seats in the state. At the same time, Murugan himself lost in the election by a margin of very less votes.
Murugan active as Dalit leader
BJP spokesperson Narayanan Tirupati said that Murugan is a hardworking, very active and energetic youth. When he was made its state chief by the party, he took it as a challenge. Murugan, a Dalit leader working as a grassroots worker for over twenty years, was associated with Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad and Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) before joining the BJP. He is also known for his organizational skills.
Elections were lost from Dharapuram by a margin of so many votes
Murugan lost the assembly election from Dharapuram (Reserved) constituency by a margin of 1,393 votes. The BJP, as a DMK ally, had managed to win four seats in the 2001 assembly elections. This time BJP as AIADMK ally repeated the same story of victory and won four seats.
