AIADMK-BJP alliance: BJP has suffered a setback in Tamil Nadu. All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK) on Monday (September 25) announced breaking the alliance with the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA). The party has passed a resolution in this regard.
After the meeting of AIADMK leaders, party’s deputy coordinator KP Munusamy said, “AIADMK is breaking all relations with BJP and NDA from today.” AIADMK workers burst crackers after breaking alliance with BJP.
The party said, “For the last one year, the state leadership of BJP has been continuously making unnecessary comments on our former leaders, our general secretary EPS (Edapaddy Palaniswami) and our workers. This resolution was passed unanimously in today’s meeting.”
What did AIADMK say?
According to news agency PTI, AIADMK said that it will lead a separate front in the 2024 Lok Sabha elections. Actually, at present there are two major alliances in the country. In this, one is BJP led NDA and the other is ‘India’, an opposition alliance of 28 parties including Congress, TMC and Aam Aadmi Party.
There are many parties which are not part of both NDA and ‘India’. There are many parties including Telangana CM KCR’s Bharat Rashtra Samithi, MP Asaduddin Owaisi’s All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen, Odisha CM Naveen Patnaik’s Biju Janata Dal and Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy’s YSR Congress Party.
What did BJP say?
When BJP state president K Annamalai was asked about breaking the alliance with AIADMK, he said that he will give a statement on this later. I don’t speak while traveling.

Why did the alliance break?
The AIDMK delegation recently met BJP President JP Nadda and Union Minister Piyush Goyal in Delhi. During this, the party sought the intervention of the leadership for an apology on behalf of BJP state chief K Annamalai.
“Our leadership does not like the idea of removing Annamalai because he is strengthening the party and expanding it brilliantly,” BJP state vice president M Chakraborty said, according to PTI. He had only made a comment about Annadurai during the Sanatan Dharma controversy in the state.
