Chennai: DMDK leader A Vijayakanth on Saturday said his supporters want him to be the "king" and not the "kingmaker" in the Tamil Nadu politics.

Addressing a massive rally at Kanchipuram district, around 70km from here, he however did not spell out clearly his party's stand on alliance for the forthcoming assembly elections in Tamil Nadu.

As party cadre said "king" to his question whether he should be a "king" or "kingmaker", Vijaykant said: "If I am the king, then you all will also be a king".

He then told journalists that party cadre want him to be the "king" and not a "kingmaker", thus signalling that he would align with those parties that agree to support his candidature as the chief minister.

The DMDK party had earlier authorised Vijayakanth to take appropriate decision on the electoral alliance.

During his address, he charged the ruling AIADMK government of corruption but did not criticise the DMK.
