Chennai, Mar 14 (UNI) The ruling AIADMK today signed an electoral pact with expelled All India Forward Bloc (AIFB) leader L Santhanam under which he would contest one seat in the May eight Assembly poll.

The agreement was signed between him and AIADMK General Secretary J Jayalalithaa at her Poes Garden residence here.

Mr Santhanam, who was the party's lone legislator and state unit General Secretary, was expelled from the AIFB for 'indiscipline' after film actor Karthik took over as state unit President recently.

AIFB National General Secretary Debabrata Biswas, after his unsuccessful meeting with Ms Jayalalithaa, had announced on Sunday last that the party would go it alone in the Assembly elections.
