AIADMK Explores Alliances with Muslim and Dalit Parties Post BJP Spli

Chennai: The All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK), Tamil Nadu’s principal opposition party, is actively pursuing alliances with Muslim political parties in the state, as well as the influential Dalit political party, Viduthalai Chiruthaigal Katchi (VCK), following its split with the BJP.

Former Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu and AIADMK leader, Edappadi K. Palaniswami (EPS), emphasized the party’s commitment to minority rights and expressed support for securing the release of minority community prisoners serving lengthy sentences.

AIADMK sources revealed that the party’s two crore members are relieved by the break from the BJP, as it now opens the door to potential alliances with parties aligned with the DMK.

EPS recently engaged in discussions with Thol Thirumavalavan MP, the founder leader of VCK, which is presently aligned with the DMK. However, if AIADMK formally recognizes VCK, it could potentially switch sides, AIADMK sources suggest.

Additionally, AIADMK is actively seeking support from the Indian Union Muslim League (IUML) and the Manithaneya Makkal Katchi (MMK), both of which have influence within the Muslim minority communities.

EPS has made it clear that the party’s separation from the BJP was driven by the cadre’s desire for a split. He has confidently stated that AIADMK will forge its own alliance and achieve significant success in the 2024 Lok Sabha elections.
