BJP drops fresh hints of its plan to form coalition govt in TN

L Murugan

Chennai: The BJP has once again dropped a hint on its plan of forming a coalition government in Tamilnadu, if AIADMK-led alliance emerges victorious in the 6 April Assembly elections.

BJP Tamilnadu unit president L Murugan has said the BJP-AIADMK combine would win an impressive number of seats of the total 234 to form the government in Tamilnadu,

Murugan, who was in Tirupati to campaign for the party candidate in the forthcoming by-elections to the Tirupati Lok Sabha seat, told reporters that the AIADMK-led alliance would win the Assembly elections and form a government in the State.

Dismissing opinion polls which favoured the DMK- led alliance, he said on the day of the results of the Assembly elections on 2 May, the true picture would be in favour of NDA with BJP winning all the 20 Assembly seats it contested in Tamilnadu.

Only recently, BJP national president J P Nadda asserted that his party would be forming governments in Assam, Puducherry, Tamilnadu, and West Bengal come this 2 May.

Speaking to reporters in Chennai, Nadda said, “In Tamilnadu, under the leadership of AIADMK we are forming the government.”
