Covai Post Network

The Tamil Maanila Congress (TMC) chief, G.K. Vasan, today released the first list of 169 candidates for 10 Corporations for the coming local body elections.

The list consisted the names of 64 candidates for Chennai Corporation followed by Tiruchi (6), Coimbatore (8), Salem (4), Madurai (10), Dindigul (5), Tuticorin (5), Tirupur (40), Erode (20) and Thanjavur (7). Of the 64 names announced for the Chennai Corporation, 23 were women. The rest of the list will be announced in next two days.

While most of the party cadres present during the announcement were happy with the list, a few were not satisfied and expect some changes in it.

Vasan had announced that his party will go alone in the civic polls after the alliance talks with DMK failed. The party had already ended its relation with the DMDK-PWF alliance of which it was a part during the Assembly elections.

Addressing media persons, Vasan said that the State Election Commission should conduct the election in a fair manner. On the Cauvery issue, the TMC leader said that Karnataka should abide by the Supreme Court’s order and release the water for Tamil Nadu. “All Karnataka MP’s stand united to ensure that Cauvery water is not released.

Tamil Nadu MP’s should also be actively involved and meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi and see that the water is released,” he said.
