Sivaganga (TN): Finance Minister P Chidambaram today claimed neither AIADMK or DMK would be able to get anything done in Delhi if their MPs are elected after the coming Lok Sabha polls as they needed the support of Congress for the purpose.
“It will be no use if you send their MPs to Delhi. Without the support of Congress or BJP, they cannot do anything there. Now the fight is only between Congress and BJP,” he said addressing election meetings in the district.
He felt none could form a government at the Centre without the support of Congress.
Stating that Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalithaa, as also AIADMK supporters had now given up all talk of projecting her as Prime Ministerial candidate, he said regional parties can do good for the state only with national parties' support.
The FM said whoever contested from Sivaganga district on behalf of Congress would think that he (Chidambaram) himself was contesting and campaign with full dedication, leaving partymen wondering who the real contestant was.
