Making a U-turn, Tamil aruvi Manian, the founder of Gandhiya Makkal Katchi has decided to canvass for the BJP-led coalition.

Earlier this week he had announced that he would stay away from the campaign for front he had helped form as an alternative to the Dravidian parties and to wipe out the Congress.

In a statement on Wednesday, the Gandhiya Makkal Katchi regretted the portrayal of Manian as a political broker by a section of the media. His decision to campaign in a few constituencies for the Lok Sabha elections follows appeals by various leaders.

Previously, Manian, a political activist with a relatively clean image, was seen as an interlocutor for Vaiko’s MDMK in the BJP-DMDK-led formation and was reportedly keen that the PMK and MDMK be treated on a par during the allocation of seats, but differences later cropped up.
