Pollachi case won’t have a political impact: BJP
Leaders of BJP’s Tamil Nadu unit believe the Pollachi sexual abuse-cum-blackmail case will not have an impact in the Coimbatore belt even as the Opposition is trying to take political advantage of the sordid episode.
Agreeing that people are upset at the sexual abuse of girls in their region, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leaders on Thursday said the DMK and its allies are trying to gain political mileage, but it may cut no ice with the public in Coimbatore.
The BJP is part of the AIADMK-led alliance in the state for the Lok Sabha elections. The party is hoping to contest the Coimbatore Lok Sabha constituency in the general elections.
