DMK-Congress Alliance Finalised For Tamil Nadu 2021 Polls: Congress Allotted 25 Seats

INDIA Team Latestly|

DMK has allotted 25 seats to ally Congress for next month's elections in Tamil Nadu. The national party has also been allotted the Kanyakumari Lok Sabha seat that would go for bypolls following the death of Congress MP Vasanthakumar. DMK will contest in 180 seats. The MK Stalin-led party has also not given assurance on the Rajya Sabha seat. The Congress share for the assembly election is a significant climbdown from the 41 seats it contested in the 2016 polls. It had won just eight then. Reportedly, the Tamil Nadu Congress had asked for at least 30 seats while the DMK said it would only spare 24, leading to a stalemate. DMK, hoping to return to power after being in opposition for 10 years, has allotted six seats to VCK, MDMK & CPI, three seats to the Indian Union Muslim League and two to Manithaneya Makkal Katchi. Tamil Nadu assembly election will be held in a single phase on April 6 and the counting of votes will be done on May 2.
