The wait for the official confirmation of the DMDK’s alliance for the Lok Sabha polls is expected to be made in the first few days of the coming week, according to sources in the DMDK.

They say their leader, Vijayakant, is likely to decide on the matter soon after he returns from Singapore, where he has gone to seek medical counsel. They also refuted rumours that Vijayakant is preparing to undergo surgery in Singapore.

“This is a false propaganda by our political opponents. He is a public figure. If he was that unwell everyone would have noticed it. He has only gone there for consultation for a minor issue,” said a senior functionary.

“Captain is expected to return to Chennai on March 1 or 2. The decision on the alliance will be made soon after that,” said a senior party functionary.

Other senior members of the party have remained tight-lipped, some even claiming ignorance about Vijayakant’s decision on alliance.

However, the DMDK has agreed ‘in principle’ for a pre-poll tie-up with the BJP, and only the hitches in seat sharing has stalled a formal announcement.
