Former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister O Panneerselvam today created a flutter in political circles after he tweeted that the alliance with Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) will be decided after local body polls are announced.

This tweet was posted by a mistake and when Panneerselvam realised it, he again tweeted "We mean that only after the announcement of local body elections, we will think about the alliance with any political party."

In his earlier tweet that was removed, Panneerselvam said: "We will take a decision on alliance with the BJP once local body elections are announced."

The removed tweet created a short political flutter as it came after Panneerselvam on Friday met Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Delhi and actor Rajnikanth hinted his proposed plunge into politics.
