Erode: Demanding establishment of Kamaraj rule in Tamil Nadu, a group of Congress workers on Sunday greeted visiting TNCC president KV Thangkabalu with slogans opposing continuance of the party`s alliance with the DMK for next year`s assembly elections.

The volunteers numbering around 100 raised slogan "Vendam Vendam DMK alliance Vendam (Don`t want DMK alliance)," for about 15 minutes as Thangkabalu emerged from a party workers meeting at the District Congress Committee office here.

Thangkabalum was accompanied by former Union Minister EV KS Elangovan, who has been critical of the DMK Government, and other leaders from the district.

Thangkabalum did not respond and walked to his car as the workers continued their slogan shouting while another group of Congressmen gathered at a road near the DCC office and also raised the same slogans.

Senior Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad, during a recent visit to Chennai had asserted that the DMK-Congress alliance would continue for the next elections also.

Azad had expressed hope that the combine would secure more seats by virtue of various social welfare schemes implemented by the Central and state governments.
