Making clear the aspirations of the AIADMK and its supremo and Tamil Nadu chief minister J Jayalalithaa, the party said the time was ripe for a Tamil to lead the nation.

In the past, people from Uttar Pradesh, Gujarat, Punjab, Andhra Pradesh and Karnataka were elected for the Prime Minister's post.

A resolution passed by the AIADMK's executive committee and general council said the time is now ripe for a Tamil to lead the country.

The resolution only endorsed what Jayalalithaa has been emphasising all along - that her party should play a larger national role after the Lok Sabha elections.

Lambasting the Congress-led government at the Centre for its "ineffectiveness" in handling the rise in price of essential commodities, "threats" posed by neighbouring countries like Sri Lanka, Jayalalithaa said the Indian government had to be thrown out.
