Chennai: DMK president M Karunanidhi on Thursday said his party will "encourage" the idea of floating a "strong alliance", including those not part of the present alliance to keep "communal parties" from coming to power in the next Lok Sabha polls.
He was responding to reporters` queries in this regard at party headquarters Anna Arivalayam after chairing the DMK Executive.
