CHENNAI: Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa on Saturday said that the AIADMK is yet to finalise its stand with regard to the Presidential elections. She said no concrete proposal had been brought to her by anyone on a candidate for the Presidential Polls scheduled to be held in July.
“The AIADMK has not yet finalised its stand or strategy with regard to the Presidential elections. And no concrete proposal has been brought to us so far by anybody,” she told reporters at the Tamil Nadu House in New Delhi.
Answering the queries of media persons, the AIADMK chief parried questions on whether her party would support Union Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee for Presidency.
On the Koodankulam Nuclear Power Project, she said it would go critical in the next 10 days and power generation would begin thereafter.
Regarding the report of the Supreme Court-appointed Expert Committee on the Mullaiperiyar dam which states that the dam is completely safe, Jayalaithaa said “That’s what we have been saying all along.”
Jayalalithaa, who was here to attend the Chief Ministers’ Conference on NCTC, said she was sure that the Prime Minister is concerned about the fiscal deficit situation and the deteriorating balance of trade. The consequent downgrading by the credit rating agency, Standard and Poor, has categorised the global outlook on the Indian Economy as negative, she said.
