AIADMK Breaks Alliance With BJP In TN, Will Form Its Own Alliance In Upcoming Elections

On 25th September All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK) ended its alliance with Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and walked out of the National Democratic Alliance (NDA).


India will hold  the Lok Sabha elections in 2024. All political parties in the country have started working for the upcoming elections. The INDIA alliance of the opposition parties and NDA will witness a bitter fight in the Elections.


The NDA has suffered a big blow in the southern state of Tamil Nadu. AIADMK, a prominent party in the state, has withdrawn its support from the NDA. AIADMK had accused BJP leaders of deliberately defaming AIADMK’s  present and past leaders. BJP Tamil Nadu unit president K. Annamalai was criticized for his comments about former Chief Ministers CN Annadurai and J. Jayalalitha. The decision to exit the NDA was taken in a party meeting.


CN Annadurai founded the Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam in 1949 and formed the first non-Congress government in Tamil Nadu in 1967. He was the political mentor of MG Ramachandran, who founded the AIADMK in 1972 and named his party after Annadurai.


The break-up was announced by AIADMK Deputy General Secretary KP Munusamy. "BJP leaders in Tamil Nadu have continuously criticized our leaders and workers unnecessarily for the last year. Therefore, the resolution to withdraw from NDA was passed unanimously in today's meeting", said Munusamy.


Tamil Nadu BJP chief K. Annamalai had made a controversial statement about former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister and Dravidian icon CN Annadurai. Former Chief Minister Ms. J. Jayalalitha was also criticized by the BJP. It was only after this controversy that the AIADMK withdrew from the NDA.


In April 2023, K. Annamalai declared the intent to expose corruption within parties that had previously governed Tamil Nadu. This statement was not well received within AIADMK. AIADMK hit back by noting that J Jayalalithaa was the only former CM convicted on corruption charges. A resolution was passed in June 2023, condeming K. Annamalai’s actions.


At a meeting in New Delhi on Saturday, AIADMK stood firm on its demand - that Mr. Annamalai either apologize for remarks on the late former Chief Minister CN Annadurai, or be replaced with a "non-controversial leader".


"We are respecting the wishes and opinion  of Two crore volunteers. It is unanimously decided that AIADMK is withdrawing its support to the National Democratic Alliance from today.", AIADMK's official Twitter account posted. AIADMK spokesperson Sasirekha said: “The decision to break ties with the BJP-led NDA alliance has been taken as per the opinion of the party members. This is the happiest moment (for us). We are very happy to face the upcoming elections (on our own), whether Parliamentary or Assembly."


NOW, AIADMK will face the 2024 Lok Sabha elections and 2026 Assembly elections by forming its own alliance, says AIADMK deputy general secretary KP Munusamy in Krishnagiri.
