"We had no information about the deliberations the AINRC, AIADMK and BJP had held finalising allocation of seats among themselves. While 16 seats had been allotted by the NDA to AINRC to field its candidates the remaining fourteen seats have been earmarked to the BJP and AIADMK," he said.

Expressing displeasure over being kept in the dark about thedeliberations between three constituents of NDA, Dhanraj said, "The PMK which is a recognised party in Puducherry has decided to contest the polls on its own."

"We will field candidates in all the 30 constituencies in the Union Territory," he said.
