AIADMK has said it will lead a separate front for the 2024 Lok Sabha polls, breaking away from the BJP-led alliance. AIADMK general secretary Edappadi K Palaniswami chaired a party meeting of key office-bearers, including district secretaries and MLAs, on Monday. During the meeting, AIADMK passed a resolution to secede from the Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP)-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA).
Top party officials, district secretaries, MLAs and MPs participated in the AIADMK meeting.

An AIADMK delegation that flew to the national capital on Friday met party president JP Nadda and Union Minister Piyush Goyal, in-charge of Tamil Nadu, and sought leadership intervention to make Annamalai apologize.
If this was not possible, they could consider posting a non-controversial leader who could work in close coordination with the AIADMK during the Lok Sabha elections next year, they reportedly said.
The BJP central leadership made it clear, though not in so many words, that it supported Annamalai’s aggressive policies for the party’s development, a senior party leader said on Saturday.
Speaking to reporters on Sunday, Jayakumar said, “There is no change in our position from September 18… there is no alliance with the BJP.” He declined to speak further on the issue, indicating it could come up for discussion on September 25.
