Chennai, Jan 8 (UNI) The Congress, a key alliance partner in the DMK-led Democratic Progressive Alliannce (DPA) in Tamil Nadu, is changing its alliance strategy, as TNCC President M Krishnasamy today declared that the party would lead a front in the 2011 Assembly elections.

Talking to newspersons here, he said the party was determined to bring back Kamaraj rule in the State and would form a separate front to capture power in the 2011 Assembly elections.

There was nothing wrong in the Congress aspiring to capture power in the State, he said, adding that the party high command would, however, decide on the alliance partners only at the time of polls.

''Our present task is to strengthen the party and shape it to bid for power in 2011,'' Mr Krishnasamy said, giving details of the zonal level party meetings held in Kancheepuram and Madurai as part of bringing unity in the party.

He said partymen, sinking their differences, had taken part in the meetings, which happened to be a great source of encouragement for them. The TNCC proposed to hold two more such meetings in Tiruchirapalli and Salem or Coimbatore after Pongal festival.

After completing the exercise, office bearers for the district units would be appointed. Union Minister of state for textiles E V K S Elangovan could not take part in the meetings as he had some prior engagements in Delhi. No other motive could be attached to his absence, he said.
