As the Lok Sabha election is fast approaching, BJP has left no stone unturned to find right allies in the State, said senior party leader Sushma Swaraj here on Friday.
The Leader of the Opposition, who landed here en route to Rameswaram, told reporters, “Nothing has been finalised yet. We are still at the talkst able. The views of State unit’s will also be counted on the issue.”
When queried upon the election strategy of the party in the State, the senior BJP leader chose to keep cards close to the chest by saying, “The party has evolved several plans to face the election in Tamil Nadu. However, they would not be revealed to the media.”
Meanwhile, speaking to Express, senior BJP State unit leaders said that alliance talks were continuing with the DMDK and PMK. “We are confident that both the parties will ally with BJP,” said a senior leader.
Sushma Swaraj, addressing the Kadal Thamarai protest in Pamban, said that the Centre was unaware of the problems of the fishermen and was remaining a mute spectator to the atrocities perpetrated by the Sri Lankan Navy on them.
Addressing the Kadal Thamarai Porattam, organised to highlight the plight of Tamil fishermen at Pamban, Sushma expressed concern over repeated attacks on fishermen of TN and Gujarat at the hands of Lanka and Pakistan respectively.
After taking part in the PMK conferences for women in the region over the last three days, Dr Ramadoss remained non committal on alliance. Refusing to answer any question relating to the subject, Ramadoss only gave an approving nod when asked if the decision has not been made yet.
