Karunanidhi, DMK leader, has invited Congress party for alliance for the next year TN assembly elections. DMK is offering a hand of friendship to the Congress party. 
 
The ‘Mahagatbandhan’ of RJD, JD(U) and Congress, which saw the fallout of BJP in the Bihar elections, we are to see the alliance of DMK with its former UPA partner Congress to fight the AIADMK in the local state elections scheduled for next year. The DMK Chief has also asked Vijaykanth of the DMDK to be a part of this alliance. 
 
Till 2014 Lok Sabha elections, DMK was a part of the Congress-led UPA at the national level. But both the parties contested the 2014 Lok Sabha elections separately. 
 
But now when Karunanidhi has offered an alliance with the Congress, it remains to be seen whether the Congress will give its nod to this friendship cum political alliance to counter Jayalalithaa in Tamil Nadu and to counter the growing influence of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in the state.
