Vaiko told Modi that BJP alone would win around 250-272 Lok Sabha seats, it said, adding the MDMK leader also sought for Modi's dates to lead a farmers' convention in Erode district, which was being coordinated by his party's Lok Sabha MP A Ganeshamurthi. While Vaiko did not participate in the Vandalur public rally here last evening addressed by Modi, he had sent senior leader Mallai Sathya on his behalf.
