NEW DELHI: After a sweeping victory in Tamil Nadu assembly polls, Chief Minister J. Jayalalithaa is likely to visit Delhi soon, party sources said Tuesday.
During her visit, the AIADMK chief is likely to meet Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, Congress chief Sonia Gandhi and other prominent Congress leaders.
"The AIADMK supremo will visit Delhi next month but the date is not yet fixed. As of now we are waiting for amma's (Jayalalithaa) orders," a top AIADMK source, requesting anonymity, told IANS.
Asked if it would be a formal visit or there would be a meeting on forming an alliance with the Congress, the source said it is "early to tell whether the visit is a casual or a political one".
Jayalalithaa's visit comes after Congress president Sonia Gandhi invited her to tea soon after the poll results were declared earlier this month. Both the Congress and the AIADMK called it a "courtesy" and denied any political alliance at the time.
"It has been over a decade that the two leaders have met personally or interacted with each other," the AIADMK source added.
"Although the Congress party has not openly claimed it's pro-Jayalalithaa shift, the party definitely seems to rebuild the relations with the AIADMK chief," the source said.
