The AIADMK announced electoral alliances for the forthcoming general election and anticipated bypolls for vacant state assembly constituencies with regional party PMK and the BJP, a hard-fought victory for a party facing persistent questions over its majority in the state assembly owing to rampant factionalism after its chief J Jayalalithaa’s death.
The tie-up between the PMK and the AIADMK is expected to be part of a larger alliance that will include the BJP and the Desiya Murpokku Dravida Kazhagam (DMDK), a party led by former film star Vijayakanth.
A scheduled visit to Chennai by BJP chief Amit Shah was cancelled today, but sources say he may travel to the Tamil Nadu capital in the evening. Union Minister Piyush Goyal is in Chennai to hold talks with the AIADMK and the DMDK.
Tamil Nadu sends 39 MPs to Parliament in a general election — a relatively large contingent compared to many other states.
Led by former supremo Jayalalithaa, the AIADMK won in all but two of Tamil Nadu’s Lok Sabha’s constituencies in 2014, but has suffered infighting and factionalism in the years since her death.
Meanwhile the party of Anbumani Ramdoss hilariously trolled by Internet users as they previously promised that there would be no tie up with any of Dravidian party.
