The three-member BJP team constituted to inquire into the murder of its Tamil Nadu unit General Secretary V Ramesh would submit its report on Monday, party spokesperson Prakash Javedkar said in Coimbatore on Wednesday.

Javedkar, who heads the committee, told reporters that party president Rajnath Singh would take up the issue with both the Centre and the state government after going through the report.

Rajnath had constituted the team on July 21, two days after Ramesh's killing.

Javedkar along with BJP national spokesperson Nirmala Seetharaman and Karnataka MP Anant Hegde, was speaking after their arrival here this evening en route to Salem, where Ramesh was murdered.

They would also interact with party leaders and cadres here in this city, Salem, Vellore and Chennai.

To a question, he said the Planning Commission's data of Rs 34 a day being enough for a decent living is ridiculous. "Let them first show how can they meet both the ends with this money," he said.

He also rubbished the Commission's claim that the number of poor people had declined to 21.9 per cent in 2011-12 from 37.2 per cent in 2004-05 on account of increase in per capita consumption.

"The schemes of the Congress-led UPA government have failed in all sectors, compared to the NDA government, led by A B Vajpayee," he claimed.
