AIADMK has severed ties with NDA. It announced it officially. The party has passed a resolution in this regard. AIADMK Deputy General Secretary KP Munusamy announced his formal separation from the NDA after a resolution was passed unanimously at a meeting of MPs, MLAs and district heads at the party’s head office in Chennai.
All India Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam i.e. AIADMK has given a big blow to BJP in Tamil Nadu before the 2024 Lok Sabha elections. The party said the move was taken in protest against BJP’s attacks and defamatory statements on AIADMK and its leaders for over a year.
The party said, ‘The state leadership of BJP has been continuously making unnecessary comments on our former leaders, our general secretary EPS and our workers for the last one year. This proposal was passed unanimously in today’s meeting.

About a week ago, there were indications of the end of the alliance of AIADMK and BJP in Tamil Nadu. Senior AIADMK leader D Jayakumar had said last Monday that his party and the BJP have now parted ways in Tamil Nadu. He had said that now our party will decide about any kind of alliance only during the 2024 Lok Sabha elections. He had made it clear that this is not his views but it is the party’s decision.
Meanwhile, efforts to resolve the rift continued. At a meeting in Delhi on Saturday – a last-ditch effort was made to reset strained ties. The south Indian party stuck to its demand that either BJP’s Tamil Nadu chief K Annamalai apologize for his remarks on late former chief minister CN Annadurai or be replaced with a non-controversial leader. Annadurai was the mentor of AIADMK founder MG Ramachandran.
Let us tell you that despite earlier friendly relations, former Chief Minister and party leader Jayalalitha had not formed an alliance with the BJP for a long time.
One of the main reasons for the distance between the two parties has been that after both of them came into alliance, AIADMK has lost all the elections including the 2019 Lok Sabha elections and the 2021 Assembly elections. The party in Tamil Nadu had been viewing the BJP as a burden for some time.
