Suspended BJP Leader Trichy Suriya Siva Quits, Blames Seniors


Chennai: Trichy BJP leader Suriya Siva, suspended from the party over a controversial audio leak incident, on Tuesday announced his resignation from the party and blamed senior officials for “interference”.

Thanking ‘elder brother’ Annamalai (BJP state chief), Suriya said that “travelling in this party has been a pleasant experience” for him.

“You (Annamalai) are the biggest treasure of Tamil Nadu BJP who will definitely score double digits in the upcoming elections,” he said in a tweet.

In another tweet tagging Annamalai, he said, “If this is to be achieved, @kesavavinayagam needs to be replaced as General Secretary of the State Organization. Otherwise, BJP will continue in Tamil Nadu as in the past. I hereby end my relationship with BJP. .”

After the recent leak of alleged phone conversation between Trichy Suriya Siva, son of DMK MP Tiruchi Siva and BJP minority morcha leader Daisy Saran, the BJP removed the OBC Morcha general secretary and suspended him for six months. He was banned from attending party events for six months, pending questioning.

In the private conversation that went viral on social media, Suriya was heard threatening Saran and also made lewd remarks.

Posting a letter on his twitter page, Suriya hailed Annamalai as a “precious gift” to the Tamil Nadu BJP and said Annamalai would be the chief minister in 2026.

“I was blessed and happy to be under your leadership for the past few months. You are a capable candidate to be the next Prime Minister of India. I love to see your growth,” he said while thanking the party president.

“L Murugan (Union minister) and Kesava Vinayagam will be happy henceforth. At least now try to trust the party workers. Without your intervention I believe my thalaivar (Annamalai) can do wonders,” he said in the letter.

If they want the BJP to win in the state, they should not come the way of the Thalaivars, he claimed.
