Amit Shah will be in Chennai on July 9 to discuss the Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP’s) strategy in the state. The BJP president will address 10,000 booth-level committee members from Tamil Nadu, Puducherry and Andaman and Nicobar island.
The move is part of the BJP’s strategy it would implement in southern Indian states ahead of the 2019 Lok Sabha election.
