The MDMK headed by Vaiko quit the BJP-led coalition to protest the Modi-led government’s stand on Sri Lanka and Tamil Nadu’s water row with Kerala and Karnataka.

A high-level committee of the Tamil Nadu-based party passed a resolution to this effect.

The MDMK was the first party in Tamil Nadu to ally with the BJP ahead of the Lok Sabha election in May.

Reacting to the development, BJP leader and central minister Pon Radhakrishnan said this was not a happy development and the issues could have been sorted out by talks.
