CHENNAI: Indicating that the DMK will not have any truck with the BJP, party treasurer MK Stalin on Thursday said a secular alliance should form the government in all parts of India.

Replying to a query by the media at the airport here, he said “victory of the secular alliance should not be confined to Bihar or northern States alone and people view it as a victory needed for the entire nation. The Bihar results show that secular alliance will win elections”.

The DMK treasurer was on his way to Patna to participate in the swearing-in of Nitish Kumar. Responding to another query if a similar mega alliance would be formed for the forthcoming Assembly elections in Tamil Nadu, Stalin said “It will be known at the election time. It will not happen without your knowledge”.

On Bihar election results, he said “I am going to Bihar to convey the greetings of DMK leader M Karunanidhi to Nitish Kumar. The Bihar Chief Minister has invited me and Kalaignar for the swearing-in ceremony.”
