PMK, DMDK begin alliance talks with BJP
Tamil Nadu's PMK and DMDK of actor A.Vijayakant officially announced their alliance talks with the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) for the Lok Sabha polls in Tamil Nadu.
In a statement, PMK founder S.Ramadoss said a committee has been formed under party president G.K.Mani to carry out the talks with BJP.
The DMDK also said in a statement that it has started talks with BJP.
If BJP succeeds in roping in PMK and DMDK within its fold, then there will be a multi-cornered contest in Tamil Nadu.
The AIADMK will be going it alone aiming for all the seats while arch rival DMK will fight the elections with two Muslim parties - MMK and IUML - and two Dalit parties - VCK and PT.
The two left parties, which called off their alliance with the AIADMK Thursday, and the Congress will also be there in the fray.
