Chennai: The Indian Union Muslim League
(IUML), a constituent of the DMK-led alliance for the April 13
Tamil Nadu polls, on Friday announced its candidates for the three
constituencies it has been allotted by its senior partner.
Altaf Hussain (Harbour), H Abdul Basith (Vaniyambadi) and M
Mohammed Sheikh Dawood (Nagapattinam) will contest the
elections from the DMK symbol `Rising Sun,` IUML said in a
release in Chennai.
After initially allotting three seats to its ally, the DMK
took one from IUML`s share, besides one each from its own and
PMK, to accommodate Congress` firm demand for 63 seats.
However, following displeasure in the IUML rank and file,
the DMK restored one seat and allotted three.
