Tamil Nadu: After meeting PM Narendra Modi, O Panneerselvam hints at alliance with BJP, later clarifies speculations

Chennai: Former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister O Panneerselvam on Saturday hinted at an alliance with the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in future. 

The senior All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK) leader posted on Twitter that a decision on alliance with BJP will be taken after local elections.

"We will take a decision on alliance with BJP once local body elections are announced," he posted.

However, soon after realising his mistake that it was too early to make the announcement, Panneerselvam again tweeted to clarify that any decision regarding an alliance with any political party will be taken after the announcement of local body elections.

We mean that only after the announcement of local body elections, we will think about the alliance with any political party," he wrote.

The tweets came a day after the former Tamil Nadu chief minister met Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the national capital and discussed political crisis going on in the AIADMK.
