DMK-Congress to sign seat sharing deal: DMK sources

NDTV Correspondent, Updated: March 03, 2011 21:24 IST


Chennai:  DMK sources have told NDTV that they have finalised a seat-sharing deal with the Congress. Under the new deal that has been thrashed out, the Congress will get 60 seats. 

In the last state election, the Congress was given 48 seats. 

This deal comes after high-level negotiations through the day. A third round of talks held late last night had failed and Ghulam Nabi Azad - the Congressman in charge of Tamil Nadu - skipped a scheduled meeting this morning with DMK chief Karunanidhi. 

Currently the Congress supports the DMK government in the state. If the alliance wins the election, the Congress wants to be included in the government.
