Congress-DMK alliance
Chennai: The Congress party on Saturday joined hands with DMK to fight the upcoming assembly polls in Tamil Nadu. 
Earlier in the day, senior Congress leader, Ghulam Nabi Azad met DMK chief, M Karunanidhi at his residence to rekindle the lost alliance. Azad was accompanied by state Congress president EVKS Elangovan and the party’s Tamil Nadu in-charge Mukul Wasnik.
“DMK and Congress will fight the Tamil Nadu assembly elections in alliance,” said Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad after his meeting with Karunanidhi.
Azad also added that Congress will hold discussions with DMK leaders in future to determine the strategy on seat-sharing.
Welcoming the alliance, DMK leader Stalin said, “This is a very positive alliance. We will emerge victorious in the polls."
Elections to the 234-seat Tamil Nadu assembly will be conducted this year.
The DMK was part of the ruling UPA for almost nine years before parting ways in March 2013 over the then Manmohan Singh government’s stand on the Sri Lanka human rights issue at the UNHRC session at Geneva.
