Hyderabad: Amidst speculation that he will try to rope in TDP into NDA, senior BJP leader M.Venkaiah Naidu has said that his party will accept support from anyone backing Advani as Prime Minister and talk to others only after the election results are out on Saturday.
“As far as we are concerned, we will talk to other parties only on 16 May evening. I am not suggesting or naming any party or the leader,” Naidu said.
He, however, said that BJP would accept support from whoever was willing to support L.K. Advani as Prime Minister and the formation of an NDA government.
Reports said that Naidu has been entrusted with the task of talking to the TDP supremo to enlist his support to the NDA in the post-poll scenario.
Expressing hope that BJP-led NDA will show better performance in the South, Naidu said that BJP would emerge as the single largest party along with its allies and would form the government.
“If you vote for us, it is full term. If you vote for others, it will be mid-term,” he added.
