AIADMK will oppose Cong nominee for Prez post: Jaya

india Updated: Jun 13, 2007 11:21 IST

AIADMK will oppose any nominee put up by Congress in the Presidential polls, party general secretary Jayalalithaa said today.

"We have decided that we will not support the Congress candidate," Jayalalithaa, who had joined hands with some opposition leaders to form a 'Third Front' at the national level, told a TV channel.

Leaders of the Front consisting of Telugu Desam Party, Asom Gana Parishad, Samajwadi Party and Indian National Lok Dal, besides AIADMK are expected to meet here, after the Election Commission comes out with the schedule for Presidential poll to decide their stand, AIADMK sources said.

Jayalalithaa has already stated that she would take a stand on whom to support in the Presidential poll only in consultation with other parties with whom she had joined to float the 'Third Front'.

This was conveyed to former Prime Minister AB Vajpayee when he had contacted her recently to seek AIADMK's support for Vice President Bhairon Singh Shekhawat.
