PTI, CHENNAI:  Prime Minister Narendra Modi said Thursday that the BJP is open to alliances and cherished its old friends, in a hint that it was looking to strengthen the NDA in Tamil Nadu ahead the Lok Sabha elections.

Slamming Congress for its "arrogance" and slighting regional parties, Modi said that the party was haughty enough to say that they would spring a "surprise" despite having none to rub shoulders with in Uttar Pradesh.

In an interaction with party booth-level workers from five districts in Tamil Nadu through video conferencing, he recalled the "successful coalition politics" ushered in by former Prime Minister, the late Atal Bihari Vajpayee in the 1990s and said the BJP's doors were "always open".

"...20 years ago the visionary leader Atal ji brought in a new culture in Indian politics, that of successful coalition politics. He gave utmost importance to regional aspirations... BJP has  followed the way Atal ji has shown us," Modi said.

The prime minister, in the fourth interaction with party workers in the state, was responding to questions from a worker on whether the BJP would ally with AIADMK, DMK or Tamil superstar Rajinikanth, who is yet to form his political party.
