AIADMK not in alliance with BJP in Tamil Nadu, 'no impact on us': D Jayakumar
AIADMK leader D Jayakumar clarifies that BJP is not in alliance with AIADMK in Tamil Nadu, alliance to be decided during elections.
AIADMK leader D Jayakumar on Monday informed that Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) is not in alliance with the K. Palaniswami-led party in Tamil Nadu. “We will decide about the alliance during the elections only", senior leader D Jayakumar said to reporters on Monday, clarifying on political alliances ahead of the crucial 2024 Lok Sabha Elections.
D Jayakumar lashed out at the Prime Minister Narendra Modi's party, asserting an assumption that strains between the AIADMK and BJP seemed to have reached a flashpoint.
Notably, BJP has been seeking alleys to establish hold over southern states after it lost its last bastion, Karnataka to Congress in the Assembly elections held earlier this year. The southern states in India are what was hailed after Karnataka Assembly Elections results - BJP free.
The saffron party's effort in making headways into Tamil Nadu has met with resistance far deeper than partisan politics. From an accusation of the BJP imposing Hindi on Tamil Nadu, to the latest Sanatan Dharma remark row triggered by MK Stalin's son, Udhayanidhi Stalin.
Opposition from Tamil Nadu is far deep seated in historical and cultural debates, than over who is better suited to hold power in the state. Although PM Modi's effort in bringing in the Adheenam seers during the new Parliament building inauguration seemed like an move in making way into the Tamil Nadu vote bank, otherwise divided by the Sanatan and Dravidam ideologies.
Tamil Nadu at present is governed by Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) leader chief minister MK Stalin.
