After addressing a party meeting at Srivilliputhur in Viruthunagar district, Tamil Nadu dairy development minister KT Rajenthira Balaji said that since the death of Amma (AIADMK supremo Jayalalithaa), it was Modi who had been guiding the AIADMK as a “Daddy”.
Modi is our daddy now, since we have lost our Amma, PM Modi has come as a daddy to guide and support us. Modi is not only the Daddy for the AIADMK, he is also the Daddy for the nation. Hence, the AIADMK has forged an alliance with the BJP, said KT Rajenthira Balaji.
The AIADMK, which contested the 2014 Lok Sabha polls on its own, won 37 of the 39 seats in the state. However, for the upcoming general elections, the AIADMK led by CM Edappadi K Palaniswami aligned with the BJP, Pattali Makkal Katchi (PMK) and Puthiya Thamilagam (PT). The AIADMK has allotted five seats to the BJP.
