J. Jayalalitha, general secretary of AIADMK, has hinted at no tie-up with Congress for the upcoming Tamil Nadu 2011 Elections.
Tamil Nadu Assembly Elections are scheduled for 2011 and the race is already on between DMK and AIADMK on forging alliances before the polls. Jayalalitha recently offered Congress support at the center if it decided to let go of DMK. However, Congress did not respond to it and it seems to have miffed Jayalalitha. In a press conference on Wednesday, she hinted at no poll collaboration with Congress.
The recent 2G scams and a spade of corruption charges against the DMK leaders may seem to have dented DMK’s chance to win again, but DMK seems to be all positive about a return to power. With Congress as its ally, it definitely has an edge.
Apart from Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Pondicherry, West Bengal and Assam will also go to polls in 2011.
