Chennai: The Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) working President MK Stalin on Tuesday claimed he had been approached by Trinamool Congress chief Mamata Banerjee to form a Third Front.

Stalin hinted at arranging for a high-level committee to take a decision with respect to forming a coalition government in Tamil Nadu.

 

MK Stalin told ANI, "TMC Chief Mamata Banerjee called me on March 4 for a 'Third Front'. DMK is a part of UPA already and there is one more year for general elections so, whatever decision we have to take we will discuss with the high-level committee".

On Monday, Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao also claimed to be approached by Banerjee for forming a coalition prior to the elections.

He told ANI, "From morning I have been receiving many calls from various places in India. This afternoon West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee called me and said that I have taken the right decision and she will be supporting me & that we will go forward together".

Tamil Nadu is currently ruled by the OPS-EPS factions of the AIADMK.

The state is set to face assembly elections in 2019.
