Puducherry, March 20: AICC leaders would shortly hold talks with DMK President M Karunanidhi on seat sharing between the regional party and Congress for the coming assembly elections, PCC President A Namasivyam said on Sunday, March 20.

The top brass of the AICC would hold talks with Karunanidhi shortly at Chennai on seat sharing and the picture for Puducherry would also emerge at the end of the talks, he told reporters here ahead of a meeting with PCC Vice-Presidents.


Congress and DMK have forged an alliance for contesting the assembly elections in Tamil Nadu and union territory of Puducherry.

In the past elections, Congress had been the lead partner of the alliance in the union territory which has 30 assembly seats. Namassivayam said AICC had constituted a committee headed by former chief minister V Vaithilingam for the Union Territory to prepare the party's poll manifesto.

Talking about the AINRC Government headed by Chief Minister N Rangasamy, the PCC leader alleged that the five-year rule had been 'a monumental failure'.

He alleged that the government had siphoned off the savings of the government employees parked in the Provident Fund to meet the expenditure for various schemes. Accusing the Chief Minister of making appointments bypassing the Employment Exchange, he said "The backdoor appointment is doing injustice to the youth."

He also claimed that the law and order situation was in the doldrums here while farmers faced hardships. People would teach the AINRC 'an effective lesson' in the polls, he claimed.
