DMDK announces list of nominees

DMDK announces list of nominees

Even as the BJP is continuing talks with its alliance partners to conclude seat sharing arrangements, its potential ally the DMDK led by actor-turned-politician Vijayakanth went ahead by announcing its first list of candidates.

The series of attempt to sort out glitches and finalise seats was not over till Friday night with the BJP and its allies taking tough stand on choice of constituencies.

However, BJP national general secretary P Muralidhar Rao said his party's national election committee will take final decision on seat sharing arrangements with the alliance by Saturday. He also admitted that except for the DMDK, seat sharing talks were finalised with other allies.

The BJP is facing a daunting task to solve the issues between Ramadoss-led Pattali Makkal Katchi (PMK) and the DMDK  over the choice of constituencies  especially in Arani, Salem, Namakkal, Coimbatore, Arakkonam and Sripermbudur.

Both the PMK and the DMDK blamed each other for adamant stand.

However, after sending a clear message to the BJP that his party will not give up any of its choice of constituencies to other parties, Vijayakanth launched his poll campaign at Gummudipundi besides announcing his candidates.
