New Delhi, May 19 (ANI): A day ahead of the crucial meeting of pre-poll UPA allies, Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M. Karunanidhi on Tuesday met Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh and Congress President Sonia Gandhi.
Karunanidhi is expected to have discussed the cabinet berths for his party.
DMK, which emerged as the third biggest party in the ruling United Progressive Alliance (UPA) after Congress and Trinamool Congress, is believed to be demanding six-seven ministerial posts.
A beaming Sonia Gandhi greeted the DMK patriarch at her 10 Janpath residence.
After meeting Gandhi, Karunanidhi met Manmohan Singh at his 7 Race Course Road residence.
Karunanidhi was accompanied by his son M. K. Azhagiri, daughter Kanimozhi, grandnephew Dayanidhi Maran and T. R. Baalu.
Karunanidhi is keen that Azhagiri, Kanimozhi and Maran are accommodated in the new cabinet, which is likely to be announced later this week. (ANI)
