Chennai, Jan 14 (ANI): Gujarat Chief Minister and Bharatiya Janata Party leader, Narendra Modi on Monday met All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK) supremo J Jayalalitha fuelling speculations that their respective parties may join hands for the next Lok Sabha polls.

The meeting between the two leaders is being seen as the beginning of a realignment of political forces after Jayalalitha snapped her ties with the BJP in 2004.

The AIADMK had parted ways with the BJP after the 2004 poll debacle in which the DMK-Congress alliance swept the Lok Sabha polls in Tamil Nadu.

However, BJP leaders squashed any such reports saying, though there were discussions about the current political scenario of the country, the meeting was personal.

We discussed the whole range of the country’s political situation. She was a very generous host. We thank her from the core of our heart, said BJP spokesperson Ravi Shankar Prasad. (ANI)
