DMK chief M K Stalin said he does not see the possibility of the formation of a government of the Third Front at the Centre, but added significantly that it will be known only after the election results. This statement comes a day after his meeting with Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao.
DMK has a alliance with the Congress in Tamil Nadu. Stalin reportedly asked KCR to ponder joining the UPA in the near future.
“I don’t see the chance of a government of a Third Front. It will be known only after the results on May 23,” Stalin told reporters.
He was asked whether there is a possibility of a formation of a Third Front government consisting of non-BJP, non-Congress parties at the Centre in the context of his meeting with Rao at his residence on Monday.Stalin said Rao came to Tamil Nadu not for forming government but to visit temples. His meeting with him was just a courtesy visit.
Asked about BJP leader Tamilisai Soundararajan’s statement that Rao’s meeting with him could make some impact, he shot back that it was only her wishful thinking. DMK has fought the Lok Sabha elections in Tamil Nadu leading the anti-BJP front in the state with Congress and other parties as allies
