NEW DELHI: With the Tamil Nadu elections over, both AIADMK and BJP are set to put the short-lived acrimony between them behind and cosy up to each other again in the coming days.

Tamil Nadu Chief Minister and AIADMK supremo J Jayalalithaa will be in Delhi to meet Prime Minister narendra Modi on June 14. While BJP top sources said this is merely a courtesy call after her re-election, they did not rule out a new equation with AIADMK at the Centre.

"AIADMK is not a part of NDA but is a friendly party. Nothing more has been worked out as yet," a senior BJP leader said.

Modi and BJP Chief Amit Shah had wished Jayalalithaa soon after her election victory.

It is not yet clear if the two parties will go further and whether AIADMK will join NDA.
