MDMK likely to be part of BJP alliance

Chennai, Jan 1 : The Tamil Nadu-based MDMK is likely to be part of the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) in the forthcoming general elections, party leader Vaiko said Wednesday.


MDMK -- or Marumalarchi Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam to give its full name -- is a Dravidian party formed in 1994 in Tamil Nadu and Puducherry.

Speaking to reporters here, Vaiko said he had held preliminary talks with leaders of the Bharatiya Janata Party on the issue of forming an alliance for the general elections.

He said MDMK's main objectives are to remove the Congress-led government at the centre and also prevent formation of any other government with Congress support.

According to Vaiko, support for BJP is gaining and there is a (Narendra) Modi wave across the country.

Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi is the BJP's prime ministerial candidate for the general elections.

Vaiko said Modi will become the country's prime minister.
