Speaking to reporters here, Tamilisai wondered why the DMK, which has a tie-up with the Congress and having proposed Rahul Gandhi as its pick for the Prime Minister’s post, should feel that the party was invited to the NDA.
“The Prime Minister had only said that Vajpayee had shown the party the way for building successful coalitions. Also, Modi had said that the strongest alliance is one with the people and more than alliances, we must focus on remaining connected with them (people),” she pointed out. Like the Vajpayee, “Narendra Modi is a strong leader,” she said adding that, “We know with whom we will go in for an alliance. We have already said we will forge ties with like-minded parties...there is enough time.”
While the Prime Minister showed civility in his remarks on coalition, Tamilisai said she doubted if Stalin had it, since he had reacted to the interaction her party leader had with BJP cadre.
