Decision on electoral alliance by Karunanidhi: Kanimozhi

Coimbatore: DMK Rajya Sabha MP Kanimozhi today said a decision on any electoral alliance for the May 16 assembly polls would be taken by her father and party chief M Karunanidhi.

“A decision on any electoral alliance, including that of DMDK, will be announced by the party chief M Karunanidhi,” she told reporters here.

Noting that party treasurer M K Stalin’s visit to all 234 constituencies through his ‘Namukke Naame’ campaign has given a boost to the party, Kanimozhi said party workers were enthusiastically campaigning in their constituencies.

On the selection process of candidates, she said the process was still on and once finalised, the list will be released by Karunanidhi and Stalin.

DMK’s election manifesto was in its final stages and would be released by Karunanidhi soon, she added.

Kanimozhi also requested the EC flying squad to take all steps to prevent money flow in the run-up to the polls.
