Chennai: Senior Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad will meet Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) chief M. Karunanidhi on Friday to discuss seat sharing between the two parties for the upcoming Tamil Nadu Assembly elections.

Congress had last month announced that it will contest the Tamil Nadu elections in alliance with the DMK.

Congress had contested the last Lok Sabha elections on its own and had drawn a blank. It had contested the last Assembly elections along with DMK but secured just five seats. Assembly strength in the state is 234.

Tamil Nadu will vote in a single phase on May 16 while the results will be announced on May 19.

Tamil Nadu has 234 assembly seats. In the 2011 assembly elections, AIADMK had won 150, DMDK-29, DMK-23, CPM-10, CPI-9 and others-13 seats respectively. (ANI)
