Taking a contradictory stand after his father and SNDP Yogam chief Vellappally Natesan attacked ally BJP, Bharat Dharma Jana Sena (BDJS) President Thushar Vellappally said his party has no differences with NDA.
“There is no difference with BJP. It is the view of SNDP and not that of BDJS,” Thushar Vellappally told after a meeting of party leaders.
His statement came hours after his father and Sree Narayana Dharma Paripalana Yogam (SNDP) General Secretary Natesan, who was instrumental in the formation of the party in the run up to the Assembly elections, accused the saffron party of not keeping promises made to it before the Assembly elections.
Thushar said he had met BJP National President Amit Shah last week and held talks on posts in boards and corporations.
“I expect a decision on the issues soon,” he added. BDJS is the key partner of BJP in Kerala.
Asked about the statement of Vellappally Natesan, Thushar said his father had made the remark in his capacity as SDNP General Secretary.
“He might have aired the feelings of some cadres,” he said.
