PMK leaders S Ramadoss and Anbumani Ramadoss and AIADMK senior leaders and Ministers Velumani and Thangamani today met their alliance partner, DMDK president Vijayakanth.

The meeting took place at the actor-turned-politician’s Saligramam residence in Chennai. Emerging out of the meeting, Ramadoss said he was there to enquire the health condition of Vijayakanth.

On Sunday, DMDK signed alliance deal with the AIADMK for four seats, while the PMK was the first party to ink pact with the ruling party and received seven Lok Sabha constituencies and one Rajya Sabha seat.

The AIADMK Wednesday allotted one Lok Sabha seat to the Tamil Maanila Congress (TMC) led by former union minister G K Vasan as it concluded the alliance formation for the coming elections in Tamil Nadu.

The agreement between AIADMK and TMC was signed by AIADMK Coordinator and Deputy Chief Minister O Panneerselvam and Joint Coordinator and Chief Minister Edappadi K Palaniswami and Vasan.

Addressing the media, Panneerselvam said, “AIADMK and TMC have formed an alliance to fight the Lok Sabha polls. According to the agreement that was reached today, TMC has been allocated one seat. The party will also extend support to AIADMK in the bypolls to be held in 21 assembly constituencies.”

TMC is the last party to come into the mega alliance stitched by the NDA in the state. With this, the AIADMK has completed its seat sharing exercise with alliance partners and the ruling party will contest in 20 seats.
