BJP welcomes Rajnikant's announcement

By Our Staff Reporter

PONDICHERRY, APRIL 11. The Bharatiya Janata Party nominee for the Pondicherry Lok Sabha seat and the party national secretary, Lalitha Kumaramangalam, today welcomed the announcement of the actor Rajnikant that he would support the BJP-led alliance and that the country would have National Democratic Alliance Government once again under the leadership of A.B. Vajpayee.

Addressing newsmen at her residence here, Ms. Lalitha Kumaramangalam said she was grateful to the actor for his announcement. The BJP had already been assured of the support of the members of the Rajni Fans Association as was resolved by the mandram at a meeting held here last month.

She said the Deputy Prime Minister, L.K. Advani, would address an election meeting in Pondicherry on the morning of May 7. The president of the Pondicherry BJP State committee, R. Kesavalu, welcomed the views of the actor and his confidence that Mr. Vajpayee would tackle the water problem by interlinking rivers in the country.
