Is the AIADMK - BJP alliance falling apart?

Is the AIADMK - BJP alliance falling apart?

The fact that AIADMK and BJP workers are taking to the streets and fighting against each other is gaining attention in the political arena. None expected  that the AIADMK alliance will run into bad weather so soon after the Erode East by-election. Many are leaving the BJP in conflict with Annamalai and directly meeting Edappadi Palaniswami and joining the AIADMK. There are talks within the AIADMK that Edappadi Palaniswami is doing the work of sketching the coalition parties as the BJP did for long.

Protesting against this incident, BJP workers from Kovilpatti burnt Edappadi Palaniswami's banner. Apart from that, posters have been put up calling Edappadi Palaniswami as a traitor.  This created discontent among the AIADMK and its members led by AIADMK city secretary Vijaya Pandian protested in front of Kovilpatti DSP office. Annamalai, who arrived at the Chennai airport to go to Madurai regarding this, while talking to the reporters there, said,

 “The Dravidian parties will grow only if they bring people from the BJP. This only shows the growth of BJP in Tamil Nadu. Every reaction has a reaction. This action will also have a reaction," he said. Now the question has arisen as to how the workers of both the parties are protesting on the streets and how they will work together in the election. Inquiring about this, a debate has arisen among the people that there is a possibility of the AIADMK-BJP alliance breaking up and contesting individually in the Lok Sabha elections.

The BJP has been insisting that both Sasikala and O.Paneerselvam (OPS) should be integrated into the party and T T V Dhinakaran's AMMK should be integrated into the alliance. But Edappadi Palaniswami is slipping away from this. Views emerge that if Edappadi Palaniswami continues like this, there is a chance that the BJP will form an alliance under its leadership.

BJP can form an alliance with OPS, Sasikala, DMDK, John Pandian's Tamil Nadu People's Development Party, New Justice Party, IJK etc. AIADMK-led parties such as TMC, Pudhiya Tamizhagam and Puratachi Bharatham may be present. They may also try to rope in PMK to their alliance. Looking at all this, it seems that the AIADMK and BJP alliance is likely to break. But with parliamentary elections still months away, the situation could change either way. Let's wait and see!
