Chennai: AIADMK chief J Jayalalithaa
on Thursday said the people of Tamil Nadu will never support a
coalition government in the state, days after her archrival M
Karunanidhi indicated that the DMK was not averse to such an
arrangement if the situation warranted.

"The people of Tamil Nadu will never support a
coalition government," she said.

Jayalalithaa, who is contesting from Srirangam in
Trichy, said the people of the state are "thoroughly
disgusted" with the domination of a one single family in the
affairs of the state.

"The people have made up their mind to throw out this
family lock, stock and barrel," she said in response to a
query.

Her comments come days after Karunanidhi indicated
that the DMK may head a coalition government in the state if
the situation warrants.

The Congress, which has been providing outside support
to the DMK Government in Tamil Nadu, has also been indicating
that it may join the government if the combine is voted back
to power.

"The results will speak," Jayalalithaa, who is hopeful
of making a comeback in the elections, said.

The former chief minister also lamented that there was
little time left for campaigning as the Election Commission
decided to conduct the polls in April instead of May.
