Question: What are the chances of forming the next government of non-BJP front in Puducherry?
Answer: In the upcoming assembly elections, the BJP will not be able to do as much as the ground support is required. However, the BJP is trying to ride on the backs of some powerful communities, in order to have success and govern the state, which according to me is not possible.
Question: The powerful Vanniyar community has already given its support to the BJP. Will it not be a big success for the saffron camp?
Answer: Vanniyars are a powerful community with more than 30 percent population of the state. Those who are strong Vanniyar leaders are still with the Congress party and I do not think the Vanniyars as a community will support the BJP as a whole. However, the BJP is trying its best to get the full support of the Vanniyars.
Question: Are you contesting the next assembly election?
Answer: I have not yet decided whether I am contesting the next assembly election or not. The power game in Puducherry and the horse trading happening there has upset my mind.
