BJP has already begun informal talks with political parties in Tamil Nadu on the possibility of forging alliance for the coming Lok Sabha elections, party state president L Ganesan said on Thursday.

Barring Congress, DMK and Left, BJP has number of options to choose its ally or allies for the polls and final shape would be taken at the right time, Ganesan told reporters in Coimbatore.

Stating that both PMK and Left were 'vulnerable,' due to recent developments--PMK going out of DPA and latter withdrawing support to UPA government, he said "BJP is open and made its stand clear that it would welcome the parties, which supported candidature of LK Advani for Prime Minister's post.

There was political compulsion for not allying with Congress, ideological compulsion with Left parties and 'the situation in Tamil Nadu' for not allying with DMK, he said.

He lashed out at the Congress-led UPA government for the "neglect of Hindus" in Jammu & Kashmir and said that there was nothing communal in the Amarnath issue.
