Chennai: A day after he indicated that the AIADMK may support the NDA after poll results are announced, senior leader K Malaisamy was on Thursday expelled by party chief J Jayalalithaa for “bringing disrepute to the party”.
Malaisamy had said that Narendra Modi "is a great friend of Jayalalithaa" even if "they may differ politically".
"If he becomes the prime minister, then madam (Jayalalithaa) would like close ties," Malaisamy had told a news channel, indicating a possible post-poll alliance.
Countering her party leader, Jayalalithaa – the Tamil Nadu chief minister – had said that she was yet to take any decision on the issue of support and was awaiting the Lok Sabha poll results.
AIADMK is expected to win at least 20 seats in Tamil Nadu and Modi is reported to be banking on support from Jayalalithaa in case the NDA falls short of majority when General Elections results are announced tomorrow.
