BJP on the verge of merging both factions of AIADMK as one unit. After late chief minister J Jayalalithaa’s glory, Tamilnadu politics took some dramatic turns. The ruling AIADMK was divided into two warring factions led by chief minister EK Palanisamy and O Panneerselvam.
The BJP is trying its best to unite the two factions and trying to bring them into NDA hold. By voting in favor of Ram Nath Kovind for the President’s post, the two AIADMK factions have already declared an informal alliance with the BJP government at the Centre.
On August 4th, AIADMK leaders will meet to decide an alliance with BJP, to join the NDA government. This would definitely give more numbers to the ruling BJP in 2019 elections.
