Congress Lok Sabha MP Karti Chidambaram on Thursday backed DMK president and Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M. K. Stalin’s stand that an alliance with the Congress at the national level is required to defeat the BJP in next year’s Lok Sabha polls.

Mr. Karti further charged that the BJP is a party that cares about the interests of the upper classes [only].

“Through Bharat Jodo Yatra, the Congress has reached out to the masses. If the Congress party undertakes another effort, it will help the party. The Congress party’s decisions will also reflect our intention to provide a government for everybody,” he said.
