Minister of Handlooms and textiles O S Manian said the official statement about the alliance of AIADMK will be made in 15 days.

Similarly Jayakumar said receiving nominations for 40 constituencies does not mean that the party will not forge an alliance.

According to reports, S P Velumani and P Thangamani are said to be in touch with BJP chief Amit Shah and the AIADMK is all set to strike an alliance with the BJP for the coming Lok Sabha elections. However, Lok Sabha Deputy Speaker M Thambidurai several senior AIADMK leaders have opposed to tie-up with the BJP.

AlADMK coordinator O Panneerselvam said yesterday that party leaders were in talks with a friendly national party for an alliance, apparently referring to the BJP.
