Chennai: The scenario of TN politics is getting into different shape as assembly elections of 2021 approached. The latest news as per AIMIM sources is that the party will contest in TN assembly elections and may go ahead with alliance. This news was confirmed by AIMIM Tamil Nadu State president Vakeel Ahmed who said his party is in touch with other parties for alliance.
MIM which tasted success in recent Bihar elections, winning five seats is preparing ground to contest in UP, West Bengal, Kerala and now in TN, according to party chief Asaduddin Owaisi. Party will contest in 25 to 30 seats in TN which is mainly focusing on winning chances of constituencies like Madurai, Krishnagiri, Vellore, Tirupattur,Vaniyambadi in North TN.
The AIMIM is not looking at AIADMK as it feels the party is in alliance or closer to BJP. Chances of joining hands with MNM are on cards as ideologies of both the parties are closer. This was proven during Kamal Hassan describing Godse as ‘terrorist’ which was supported by AIMIM chief at that time.
Asaduddin Owaisi told TNM that the party has not finalised the number of seats it will be contesting as yet. When asked about a possible alliance in Tamil Nadu, he said, “The political equations in the State will be decided by the state unit of the party.”
AIMIM chief is holding talks with his party office bearers of TN and decision will be taken at right time as per party sources.
