"Such an alliance is nothing new in Puducherry. We had had formed a coalition government with DMK in the past," the former Union Minister noted.

The opposition Congress in Puducherry on Saturday welcomed the announcement of alliance between the Congress and the DMK in neighbouring Tamil Nadu to fight the coming Assembly polls and claimed that such a pact would also be the direct development in Puducherry.

Senior Congress leader and former Union Minister V. Narayanasamy told PTI, “It is indeed a good development that the alliance between the DMK and the Congress has been clinched now during the talks between senior Congress leader and Opposition Leader in Rajya Sabha Ghulam Nabi Azad and DMK patriarch M. Karunanidhi in Chennai today.”

He said such a pact would be mutually beneficial for the two parties and Puducherry would also follow suit.

He also pointed out that in the past too, the Congress had an alliance with the DMK in Puducherry.

“Such an alliance is nothing new in Puducherry. We had had formed a coalition government with DMK in the past,” he noted.

Further, he said details regarding seat-sharing between the two parties would be discussed and decided in course of time as the present groundwork firming up the alliance was a “good development”.
