Controversy[edit]

Attack on kirubanidhi[edit]

Kirubanidhi, the first Dalit president of the BJP in Tamil Nadu, along with Ila Ganesan went to Indore, Madhya Pradesh to participate in the BJP national council's meeting. After the meeting, Ila Ganesan started abusing Kirubanidhi verbally by calling his caste name. Even though Kribunidhi tried to pacify him he twisted kirubanidhi's arm. Later on an interview, Kirubanidhi said the fight was over the misuse of funds by Ila Ganesan that he had pointed out.[5]
