The BJP's Tamil Nadu state unit on Monday termed its leader B T Arasa Kumar's praise for DMK chief M K Stalin an act of indiscipline and wanted its top leadership to take action against him.
A day after Kumar's speech eulogising the Dravidian top leader went viral, the BJP unit general secretary K S Nagendran said his remarks went against the party discipline and a letter has been sent to the national leadership seeking action against him.
State vice president of the saffron party, Arasa Kumar often participated in Tamil television debates as a representative of his party.
Now, he has been barred from taking part in such shows and party related events till such time the high command decided on the matter, Nagendran said in a party release.
In his speech at a function, Kumar had said it was Stalin whom he looked up to after late AIADMK founder and Chief Minister M G Ramachandran.
Time will ripen and "things will take place automatically. Thalapathi (as Stalin is called by his followers) will ascend the (Chief Minister's) throne," Kumar had said.
