DMK President MK Stalin on Tuesday said he saw no chances for a non-BJP, non-Congress “third front” post Lok Sabha polls, but a decision could be taken only after May 23, the counting day.

Stalin’s remarks come a day after Telangana Rashtra Samithi supremo and Chief Minister K Chandrasekara Rao, who has been pushing for a non-Congress, non-BJP federal front of regional parties, called on the DMK chief here.

Stalin, also Tamil Nadu Leader of Opposition, said Rao had not visited the State for forging alliances.

A courtesy call

“He did not come to form alliances. He came to Tamil Nadu to offer prayers in various temples and on that basis, sought an appointment with me for a courtesy call. That is all,” he told reporters here.

Rao had earlier visited the Sri Ranganatha Temple at Srirangam before meeting Stalin.

Asked about the possibility of a “third front” sans the BJP and the Congress, the DMK leader said, “It doesn’t seem to me that there is a chance for that.”

“However, that will be decided only after counting on May 23,” he added.
