news TN Polls Wednesday, March 09, 2016 - 17:19

Congress on Wednesday said it would release its manifesto for the coming assembly polls in Tamil Nadu in 15 days after approval from the high command.

"The Tamil Nadu Congress Committee is now busy preparing the election manifesto and after completing it, they will send it for approval from AICC and then release it in 15 days," TNCC president E V K S Elangovan told reporters in Erode.

He said the party had entered into a tie up with DMK as its ultimate aim was to defeat the ruling AIADMK. If DMDK joined the fold, they could easily defeat AIADMK, he said.

He evaded a reply to a question about his views on Congress leader and former Finance Minister P Chidambaram and his followers in the party, saying he was not interested in replying to queries related to him.

However he would recommend seats to 'real' Congress members to contest the polls, Elangovan said, adding that partymen who had already given in writing their option to contest would be given seats.
