Days after his party announced a tie-up with BJP for Lok Sabha election, MDMK founder Vaiko on Sunday met the party’s Prime Ministerial candidate Narendra Modi in Chennai.
Modi and Vaiko discussed the former’s rally, where the Gujarat Chief Minister had torn into Union Finance Minister P Chidambaram for questioning his knowledge of economics, a party statement said quoting the meeting which was held on Saturday night.
Vaiko told Modi that BJP alone would win around 250-272 Lok Sabha seats, it said, adding the MDMK leader also sought for Modi’s dates to lead a farmers’ convention in Erode district, which was being coordinated by his party’s Lok Sabha MP A Ganeshamurthi.
While Vaiko did not participate in the Vandalur public rally in Chennai on Saturday evening addressed by Modi, he had sent senior leader Mallai Sathya on his behalf.
