Chennai: The Marumalarchi Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (MDMK) led by Vaiko on Monday snapped all ties with the National Democratic Alliance (NDA). It said it was quitting the NDA over the government's stand on Sri Lanka and Tamil Nadu's water row with Kerala and Karnataka.

A high-level committee of the Tamil Nadu-based party passed a resolution to this effect at a meeting here. Although the MDMK's exit will in no way affect the central government, it becomes the first party to quit the BJP-led alliance since Modi took power in May this year.

The MDMK said that when it joined the NDA, it made it clear that the BJP-led government should not support Sri Lanka and its President Mahinda Rajapaksa. But Prime Minister Narendra Modi's government had gone against the earlier promise and started supporting the Rajapaksa government, it said.
