Tamil Nadu Assembly Elections: DMK toughens stands on seat allocation; no pact with Left and Congress yet
Chennai: With the Assembly Elections in Tamil Nadu around the corner, the political hobnobbing has intensified in the southern state.
The 234-member Tamil Nadu Assembly will go to the polls in a single phase on April 6. The counting of votes will take place on May 2.
As the Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam is out of power in Tamil Nadu for the past 10 years, the party's president MK Stalin is strategizing scripting a grand comeback for the DMK in the upcoming Assembly polls.
It seems the DMK is in no mood to give a huge chunk of constituencies to its allies. On Monday, the party signed a seat-sharing deal with the Indian Union Muslim League (IUML) and Manithaneya Makkal Katchi (MMK), apportioning them three and two seats, respectively.
However, the party has failed to reach an agreement with the Left parties.
