AMMK allots 60 seats to DMDK

Amma Makkal Munnetra Kazhagam on Sunday concluded a seat sharing arrangement with DMDK and alloted it 60 Assembly constituencies for the 6 April Assembly polls.

Under the agreement, DMDK, which walked out of the ruling party led alliance recently would contest from city segments like Villivakkam, Egmore (Reserved) and Sozhinganallur besides constituencies in several parts of Tamilnadu.

The DMDK, which demanded at least 23 seats from AIADMK snapped ties with it days ago after the ruling party declined to part with it.

Candidates previously announced by AMMK for segments now earmarked for DMDK would be withdrawn, Amma Makkal Munnetra Kazhagam top leader TTV Dhinakaran said.

Following this DMDK released the list of candidates who will contest in the 60 seats alloted to them.
