Lok Sabha elections 2024: Union Home Minister Amit Shah will conduct four road shows and one public meeting during his two-day visit to Tamil Nadu starting from Thursday (April 4). As the Lok Sabha polls 2024 is just round the corner, Home Minister Shah's impending two-day excursion to Tamil Nadu emerges as a strategic move in the political landscape of the state.

Shah will kickstart his campaign with a road show in Tamil Nadu's Theni town on Thursday afternoon, followed by a pivotal public meeting in Madurai later in the evening. His agenda also includes a significant stop at the Meenakshi Amman Temple in Madurai, symbolizing an attempt to resonate with the religious sentiments of the electorate.

The following day is poised for a relentless on slaught of political engagement, as Shah gears up for three consecutive road shows slated from Friday morning till afternoon. These road shows are strategically planned across diverse locations in Tamil Nadu, covering Karaikudi in Sivaganga, the bustling route from Asath Nagar junction to the New Bus Stand in Tenkasi, and the vibrant Thakkalai area in Kanniyakumari.

Shah's visit not only signifies the BJP's fervent bid to fortify its electoral footing in Tamil Nadu but also underscores the state's increasing significance in the national political arena. With the Lok Sabha elections looming large, Shah's presence in Tamil Nadu serves as a potent manifestation of the BJP's ambitions to make significant inroads in the southern state's political landscape.
