Chennai: The DMK said on Tuesday that it will stick with the Congress even after the Lok Sabha elections and that this had been conveyed to Telangana Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao who favours a non-Congress, non-BJP coalition to govern India.

We are committed to Congress. Never in the history of DMK has it changed its alliance post elections. The party has always stuck to its pre-poll alliance partner,” a DMK leader said. He said that the importance of DMK’s alliance with the Congress was explained to Rao at the meeting with Stalin here on Monday.

Our party will not align with the BJP with or without Narendra Modi as it would have a negative impact in Tamil Nadu. There is an anti-BJP wave in Tamil Nadu. The DMK will not be part of a third front govt formed with the support of BJP,” the DMK leader added.
