Chennai: TNCC president K V Thangkabalu
today said the DMK-Congress alliance is intact and expressed
confidence that the six-year-old combine would secure a
majority in next year`s assembly elections in the state.

Speaking to reporters here after calling on DMK
president and Chief Minister M Karunanidhi, he referred to the
recent statements by party`s Tamil Nadu in-charge and Union
Health Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad that the alliance was strong.

"The DMK-Congress alliance will fight next year`s
elections also and win them by securing two-thirds majority,"
he said.

The ruling combine had successfully contested 2004 and
2009 Lok Sabha elections and 2006 Assembly elections.

The alliance was intact both at Centre and Tamil Nadu,
he said. The decision by party president Sonia Gandhi and
Karunanidhi would be final on this matter he said, in response
to a question on dissenting voices such as former Union
Minister E V K S Elangovan against the combine.

Asked if Elangovan figured in his meeting with
Karunanidhi, Thankgabalu said they did not discuss anything
about him as there was no need for it.
