Upset DMK to part away after Cong's foul play?

Manmoahn Singh and M Karunanidhi
New Delhi, Mar 5: The 7-year-old Congress-DMK alliance seems to stand on its verge. Recently, the alliance was under threat after DMK leader and former telecom minister A Raja's tainted role in 2G spectrum scam. Now, once again it has been confronted with similar kind of threat over the seat sharing dilemma in the upcoming assembly polls in Tamil Nadu.

Congress and DMK, both have held three round talks but all went on vain. Congress in-charge in Tamil Nadu, Union Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad returned to the national capital without discussing with DMK supremo M Karunanidhi on Mar 3, sources reported.

Karunanidhi, recently expressing his grief at Congress, stated, "We finally agreed to give 60 seats to the Congress and this was finalised and conveyed to Ghulam Nabi Azad. Instead of signing the agreement, the Congress today called and demanded for 63 seats over the phone and that too all of their choice. Is this fair? We will decide the further course in the meeting."

DMK will hold an internal meeting today (Saturday, Mar 5) to discuss the Congress' needs, along with its election manifesto, informed the party sources.

After A Raja, trouble for Congress and DMK has also increased as the investigative agency Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) is extending its investigating net which is reportedly planned to nail Karunanidhi's daughter and senior DMK leader Kanimozhi.

While Congress is facing several criticism from the Opposition over many corruption charges, DMK is also receiving threat in the state where main Opposition leader Jayalalitha is all set to mar Karunanidhi's reign in Tamil Nadu, sources said.

The central election commission has recently declared the poll dates of four states and one union territory including Tamil Nadu. The crucial election of the state will be held on Apr 13 and the counting will be done one month after the poll date.
