DMK rules out going in for coalition govt

Rejecting the view that a multi-cornered contest would lead to a fractured verdict, he said the DMK will be able to form a government on its own.DMK treasurer M.K. Stalin, on Thursday, categorically rejected the notion of a coalition government after the 2016 Assembly elections.

“Other political parties are talking about a coalition government only to stay relevant in Tamil Nadu politics. A coalition government has never been acceptable to the people of Tamil Nadu. The DMK will be able to form a government on its own. The failure of the experiment by the DMK-Congress combine to contest in an equal number of seats in the 1980 Assembly polls is a proof that people are not open to the idea of a coalition government,” Mr. Stalin told The Hindu.
