Chennai: Ahead of ensuing general polls, the Congress party has put the alliance with Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) on the fast track and announced the seat-sharing deal on Wednesday evening.
The Congress is likely to have 9 of the 39 Lok Sabha seats in Tamil Nadu and the lone seat in Puducherry. The DMK will contest 20 to 25 seats and the balance will go to smaller allies.
Announcing the details of the deal, MK Stalin said, “There is a wave of opposition (against AIADMK) and people expect change.” He added, “AIADMK alliance is money-centric, not people-centric.”
A delegation led by senior Congress leader Mukul Wasik had finalised seat sharing with the DMK in Tamil Nadu and Puducherry.
