Though Azad told reporters here that it will be a courtesy call as he always meets Karunanidhi whenever he is here, the meeting is however seen as a possible attempt for the two parties to align again.

According to Azad, the president of Congress party's Tamil Nadu unit E.V.K.S.Elangovan and Mukul Wasnik the party's in-charge for the state will also accompany him to meet the DMK leader.

In 2011 with some hard bargaining, the Congress got 63 seats to contest in the assembly elections.

The DMK came out of the United Progressive Alliance (UPA) government in 2013 charging the government of not handling the Sri Lankan Tamils issue properly.
