DMK president M.K Stalin, said on Tuesday (14th May) that he doesn’t see a chance for the formation of a third front. However, he said the final decision will be taken only after May 23rd, the day of counting.
The statement comes a day after he met with K.Chandrasekhar Rao, who has been trying to push for a non-congress, non-BJP alliance of regional parties. Though there were speculations that Rao met him to discuss the possibilities of a third front, Stalin denied such claims.
“He did not come to form alliances. He came to Tamil Nadu to offer prayers in various temples and on that basis, sought an appointment with me for a courtesy call. That is all,” he told.
Responding on the possibility of a “third front” that is non- BJP and non-Congress, the DMK leader said, “It doesn’t seem to me that there is a chance for that.”
“However, that will be decided only after counting on May 23,” he added. Rao had earlier met Pinarayi Vijayan of Kerala raising same concern.
