DMK allots one LS seat to KMDK

The Opposition DMK on Tuesday allotted one seat to its ally, the Kongunadu Makkal Desiya Katchi (KMDK), for the ensuing Lok Sabha polls. An agreement to this effect was signed between DMK President M K Stalin and KMDK General Secretary E R Eswaran after holding seat-sharing talks at the DMK headquarters 'Anna Arivalayam'. 

The KMDK would contest the polls under the DMK's 'Rising Sun'  symbol in the elections, a DMK release here said. The lone seat to be contest by KMDK would be identified later. The DMK had already finalised the seat sharing agreement with the Congress and the IUML, by allotting nine and one seats respectively.

Stalin had said that the DMK would contest the remaining seats after allocating it other allies like the MDMK, VCK, CPI, CPI(M) and MMK, with whom seat sharing talks were being held.
