BJP fails  to woo Vijayakanth

 Amid reports that the Opposition DMK and the Desiya Murpokku Dravida Kazhagam (DMDK) in Tamil Nadu are getting closer for a poll alliance, another attempt by the BJP to have the next round of discussion with Vijayakanth failed on Thursday.

Union minister and BJP Tamil Nadu election in-charge Prakash Javadekar, who was supposed to meet Vjayakanth for the second round of discussion on poll alliance, returned disappointed as the meeting did not take place, sources said.

Though Javadekar claimed that he came to Chennai for an official purpose, BJP sources here said since Vijayakanth had left to his Rishivandhiyam constituency, the Union minister could not meet the actor for a discussion. “I am here today for an office work. No political activities,” Javadekar said.

Sources said Javadekar’s main purpose of visit was to clinch the deal with the DMDK. In addition, Javadekar also failed to meet Pattali Makkal Katchi (PMK) chief Ramadoss.

The Sunday talks between the Javadekar and Vijayakanth was inconclusive as the DMDK chief demanded more than 100 seats. The Union minister, who had one-hour discussion with Vijayakanth at his party office, had earlier said he will visit the city before the budget for another round of talks.
