Lok Sabha Elections 2024: Asaduddin Owaisi on Saturday (April 13) announced his party AIMIM’s support to the Edappadi K Palaniswami-led AIADMK in Tamil Nadu for the April 19 Lok Sabha elections. He said that the alliance will also continue for the Assembly elections in Tamil Nadu, apparently referring to the 2026 state polls.

Taking to X, Owaisi said, “AIADMK has refused to ally with BJP and has committed to never allying with it in the future. It has also assured that it will oppose CAA, NPR & NRC. Therefore, AIMIM extends its support to AIADMK in the coming Lok Sabha elections. Our alliance will also continue for the Assembly elections”.
