The decision will affect sizeable population of Christian community in Tamil Nadu casting their votes for political parties.

Addressing an election rally at Madurai on May 8, Swamy said:

He condemned the statement issued by the Churches. “This is against all norms specified in the Representation of People’s Act and we will not hesitate to approach the Election Commission of India against the TNBC and the CSI,” said Swamy.

In a statement, Tamil Nadu Bishops’ Council president and Madurai archbishop Anthony Pappusamy, said that it “realised that it is the need of the hour to safeguard secular and democratic values.” It said, “The stand is not taken because the council feels that these parties are clean but they are lesser evil.”

Swamy has also reacted strongly to BJP candidate at Royapuram in Chennai, R Jemeela, being denied entry into a church when she went for Sunday Mass.

Swamy blamed the Church authorities for openly urging believers to cast votes for DMK-Congress alliance.

He said both the AIADMK and the DMK which ruled the State for the last 50 years, have not done anything for Tamil Nadu’s development, and it was him who waged a legal war in the Supreme Court for raising the water level in Mullaperiyar Dam.

“The Supreme Court verdict for raising the water level in the Dam to 142 ft was delivered against the petition filed by me. But Jayalalithaa is claiming the credit for the same. Similarly I only got the Union Government to install a statue of freedom fighter Muthuramalinga Thevar at the Madurai airport. But Jayalalithaa claims that it was her work,” he said while accusing the AIADMK supremo J Jayalalithaa for claiming credit for the works done by him.
