Chennai, April 29 (IANS) The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is ready for an electoral alliance with the All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK), BJP president Rajnath Singh told reporters here Tuesday. “Within the (framework of the) disciplined NDA, we are always open for (an electoral alliance with the) AIADMK,” said Singh.

Answering a question, Singh said that his party was willing to consider alternative routes for the controversial Sethusamudram Shipping Canal Project (SSCP) to avoid destroying the Ram Sethu - a causeway believed to have been built by Hindu god Ram several thousand years ago.

Singh, however, did not comment on the unconditional sanction accorded to the vexed project by the NDA when it was in power at the centre.
