Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad is all set to hold talks with DMK president M Karunanidhi in Chennai on Friday over seat sharing between the two parties for the May 16 Assembly polls in Tamil Nadu.

“Azad will be here tomorrow ( Friday)  and according to the tentative schedule he will meet DMK president Karunanidhi around 11 am,” a State Congress leader told PTI.

Azad’s visit comes against the background of unsuccessful attempts of the DMK to woo DMDK to its camp. Now that a major party like DMDK is out of picture, it is expected that Congress would bargain for more seats.

Besides the Congress, DMK has reached an electoral understanding with Muslim parties like the IUML and the MMK. IUML has been allocated five seats by the DMK.
