Jayalalithaa expelled Malaisamy from the AIADMK for bringing disrepute to the party by breaking the organizational protocol.

Malaisamy had on Wednesday claimed that Jayalalithaa was a close friend of Modi despite differing politically and she would like to join the NDA if the Gujarat Chief Minister becomes the country’s Prime Minister.

Several exit polls have suggested a landslide win for the NDA in the 2014 Lok Sabha elections with many also predicting Jayalalithaa to play the role of a kingmaker after the results are out.

If the NDA fails to achieve absolute majority, a scenario may emerge where Jayalalithaa’s support might be required.

The AIADMK supremo has so far kept her cards close to chest and not revealed even an iota of her post-poll strategy just like any shrewd politician. If Malaisamy’s comments are considered as a pointer to what Jayalalithaa might be thinking, then it is definitely positive news for the saffron camp.

Modi and Jayalalithaa had berated each other during their election campaigns in Tamil Nadu, however the BJP’s prime ministerial candidate had also hinted recently that they both have an affinity for each other despite have ‘political differences’.
