The decision of DMDK chief captain Vijaykanth to go alone in the assembly polls has sparked speculations about alliance arithmetic in Tamil Nadu.
The dramatic announcement essentially means that in all probability, a multi-cornered fight is on the cards against incumbent AIADMK government. But after dumping Karunanidhi’s DMK, the captain has opened a line to BJP.
Sources suggest that the Vijayakanth is open to an alliance with BJP with the condition that it chooses to accept primacy of DMDK as the senior partner. Amid all this, the DMK has put up a brave face and said that the captain’s decision to go solo is not a jolt for them.
The question is by dumping DMK, has Vijayakanth become the spoiler number-1 and will Jayalalithaa be the biggest beneficiary of captain’s move?
