Chennai, Jun 28: It seems like the ongoing crisis on Karunanidhi led DMK will deepen further as its rival AIADMK leader hinted about a possible alliance with the Congress. Responding to a question to a possible political realignment before the 2014 general elections, Tamil Nadu Chief Minister and AIADMK supremo said that "anything can happen anytime".

During an interview with Times Now channel, Jayalalithaa said that all political parties have to be capable of flexibility as the Indian political scenario tends to change any time.

"To be successful, you have to be capable of flexibility … You should know what is best for your party and, more importantly, for the people who have reposed their faith in you," Jayalalithaa said.

When asked about her offer to support Centre in 2010, Jayalalithaa answered that the situation was different in 2010 and the offer was to give confidence to Congress to take actions against DMK leaders over 2G spectrum scam. She also added that now the situation has totally changed and Congress made it clear that it has an alliance with DMK.

During the interview, Jayalalithaa, who recently visited Prime Minister Manmohan Singh in New Delhi, also hinted about the possibility of a third front emerging ahead the 2014 general elections.

Jayalalithaa also said that she was not in favour of including the Prime Minister under the purview of the LokPal

"The Prime Minister should be excluded from the purview of the bill as he is already covered under the Prevention of Corruption Act and the CBI can investigate."
