TN Polls: AMMK general secretary TTV Dhinakaran files his nomination from Kovilpatti
Amma Makkal Munnetra Kazhagam (AMMK) general secretary TTV Dhinakaran on Monday filed his nomination from Kovilpatti assembly constituency for upcoming elections in Tamil Nadu.
Notably, days after leaving the AIADMK-led alliance over a seat-sharing dispute, actor-turned-politician Vijayakanth's DMDK on Sunday sealed a partnership with TTV Dhinakaran's AMMK for Tamil Nadu polls.
Under the new alliance, DMDK will contest from 60 seats of the state's 234 seats in Tamil Nadu.
Vijayakanth's party on March 9 quit the AIADMK-Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) alliance citing non-allocation of expected seats or constituencies as the reason behind it leaving the alliance.
The assembly elections in Tamil Nadu will be held in a single phase on April 6 and the counting of votes will be done on May 2.
Polls will be held for 234 seats in the state with the Congress-DMK and BJP-AIADMK alliance being the major groups contesting against each other.
