"The reports had claimed that a day before the accord was
signed, second-rung leaders of PMK and AIADMK had met when
AIADMK had reportedly offered some constituencies, which is
nothing but rumour. There is not even an iota of truth in this
and PMK and AIADMK leaders were never involved in parleys",
PMK president GK Mani said in a statement here.
He charged a section of the media with trying to 'demean'
its poll tie-up with DMK and said they were carrying reports
'aimed at maligning PMK.'
They intended to create 'confusion' by claiming M
Karunanidhi had subsequently arrived at a hurried deal with
PMK. Such reports were not true, he said.
The deal was clinched at a one-off meeting between PMK
founder S Ramadoss and DMK chief M Karunanidhi, he added.
DMK had allotted 31 seats to PMK for coming Assembly
elections when Ramadoss had met Karunanidhi on February 18.
PMK had fought the 2009 Lok Sabha polls as part of the
Chennai: Days after clinching a poll accord
with Tamil Nadu's ruling DMK, PMK on Saturday said it was not
involved in any parleys with AIADMK and charged a section of
the media with trying to 'demean' its alliance with DMK.
