Coimbatore: Dismissing reports of a possible alliance with DMK for the coming Assembly polls in Tamil Nadu, the BJP said the exercise of forming a tie up with a party would be completed before the announcement of poll dates.

"It is a figment of one's imagination to think of an alliance with DMK...there is no information from high command on this. BJP will form an alliance for the Tamil Nadu Assembly polls before announcement of poll dates," party state president, Tamilisai Soundararajan said. 

On February 4, BJP president Amit Shah had said in Kochi that the party was open to the question of alliance and that they were weighing all options.

He had said this when asked about alliance and his party leader Subramanian Swamy pitching for a new "DMK-DMDK-BJP" front.

But quick to refute any possibilities, party state president, Tamilisai Soundararajan said that there was no such plan.
