Mumbai: Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) working president M.K. Stalin on Saturday said that his party would never come to power in Tamil Nadu through the "back door" as they are not "power hungry".

Stalin was speaking in Mumbai's Bhandup after unveiling a statue of saint-poet Thiruvalluvar.

"As far as DMK is concerned, we will never come in power through back door because a good government cannot be run in such circumstances," he said at the function.

He further slammed the ruling AIADMK government and said changes in the Tamil Nadu political situation may take place soon.

"Recent development in Tamil Nadu indicates that changes in political scenario may take place soon. There will surely be a change. Whether the ruling government will last a year or months or even days is the issue. If it falls any moment, there should be no surprise," Stalin added.

He also hit out at Chief Minister Edappadi K. Palaniswami, and said, "In present political situation in Tamil Nadu, people don't know if there is a Chief Minister or not. If he is a Chief Minister, it is on basis of horse trading."

Stalin has been miffed with the ruling party ever since the two AIADMK factions -- one led by O. Panneerselvam and the other led by Edappadi K. Palaniswami -- have merged.
