Tirunelveli (TN): The Congress in Tamil Nadu has said that it plans to enroll 50 lakh members by July 15, the 115 birth anniversary of late Chief Minister Kamaraj, as part of steps to strengthen the party in the state.

"We propose to enroll 50 lakh new members in Congress by July 15, the birthday (115th birth anniversary) of late Chief Minister Kamaraj.... these are part of measures to strengthen the party in the state," TNCC President S Thirunavukarasar told reporters here on Sunday.

Party meetings would be held from the third week of February to third week of March, he said, adding that from July 15 onwards, national and state level Congress leaders would carry out state wide campaigns through vans.

Thirunavukarasar said he foresees holding of Lok Sabha and assembly elections simultaneously in Tamil Nadu in view of the current political situation in the state.

He claimed that the various announcements in the 2018 budget were an indicator of early Parliamentary polls. Moreover, the BJP government at the centre has itself mooted the idea of simultaneous elections to assemblies and Lok Sabha throughout the country, he said.

In Tamil Nadu, there is bickering between ruling AIADMK and rival leader T T V Dhinakaran and perceived political instability.
