Erode: BJP national President Amit Shah on Thursday hit out at the Opposition alliance, saying it "lacked" leaders, policies and philosophy, and billed his party-led NDA as "strong."
Taking potshots at the DMK-Congress combine, he said the proposed alliance was not for the benefit of Tamil Nadu, but only to indulge in "scam and corruption."
The NDA under Prime Minister Narendra Modi is ready to lead the nation for a successive term, the BJP chief said, while addressing handloom and powerloom associations in Tamil Nadu's Erode town.
There were two alliances in the country, "one under (Congress chief) Rahul Gandhi and a gathbandhan which has no leader," Shah said. "Under BJP and Prime Minister Narendra Modi's leadership, the NDA's strong alliance is ready to lead the nation," for a second term after the Lok Sabha polls, he added.
Detailing various government initiatives taken by the Centre for Tamil Nadu's growth, Shah said his party would face the coming polls from as part of a "strong" alliance.
