CHENNAI: State BJP president Tamilisai Soundararajan on Thursday held a 30-minute discussion with DMDK founder Vijayakant at his residence.

The meeting assumes significance as it took place just a few days ahead of Prime Minister Narenda Modi’s visit to Coimbatore.

BJP leaders have been reiterating that Modi’s address at public meeting on February 2 could be a turning point in the political scenario in the State. Sources said the party leaders had intensified the efforts to show some ‘concrete result’ of forging alliance to face the Assembly elections when Modi was in the State. BJP sources here said Tamilisai met Vijayakant to invite his family to the wedding of her son scheduled for February 17 in Chennai.  Premalatha was also there during the meeting. On the speculation that efforts were on to facilitate a meeting between Vijayakant and Modi, the sources said BJP had already conveyed its stand to the DMDK leader and the party was yet to hear from Vijayakant.  Tamilisai will be leave for Coimbatore to oversee the arrangements for the PM’s visit.
