Returning to Chennai from Kodanadu in Nilgiris district, where she went after the Lok Sabha elections, AIADMK general secretary and Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa said she preferred to comment on the political developments only after results were announced.

Speaking to reporters at the airport Wednesday afternoon, Jaya said she too was eagerly waiting for the results to be declared. “Any decision could be taken only after results are announced. Till then, I prefer not to comment,” said Jaya.

She also chose not to comment on a query about the prospects of a third front.

Exit polls are predicting that her party will win between 25 and 30 of the total 39 seats in Tamil Nadu. If these predictions are right and if the NDA falls short of a simple majority, the AIADMK is expected to gain big in the post-poll scenario.
