Chennai, 14th June. 
BJP leader Tamilisai Soundararajan on Thursday addressed the buzz surrounding her interaction with senior party leader Amit Shah, following a video that surfaced on social media. The clip, recorded during TDP leader Chandrababu Naidu’s swearing-in as Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister on Wednesday, shows Mr. Shah conversing with Soundararajan in an animated manner, gesturing with his finger.

In a post on X (formerly Twitter) on Thursday evening, Soundararajan, the former Governor of Telangana, clarified the context of the discussion. She mentioned that it was her first meeting with Amit Shah after the Lok Sabha poll results were declared, and the conversation was focused on “post-poll follow-up.”

“Yesterday as I met our Honorable Home Minister Sri @AmitShah ji in AP for the first time after the 2024 Elections, he called me to ask about post-poll follow-up and the challenges faced. As I was elaborating, due to paucity of time, with utmost concern, he advised to carry out the political and constituency work intensively which was reassuring. This is to clarify all unwarranted speculations,” she posted.

Soundararajan, who contested from the South Chennai Lok Sabha seat, lost the election to DMK’s Tamizhachi Thangapandian. Her comments come amid rumors of an intra-party feud within the Tamil Nadu unit of the BJP, especially following her alleged remarks about “criminal elements” in the party and the notion that the BJP “would have won had there been an alliance with the AIADMK.”

Upon her return to Chennai on Wednesday, Soundararajan declined to comment on the claims of discord within the party related to her interaction with Amit Shah. Her clarification on social media aimed to dispel any misinterpretations and emphasize the productive nature of her conversation with the Union Home Minister.
