The meeting felt that since the main aim of the Congress was to defeat the TRS and they being the major partners in the alliance, they should adopt the policy of give and take and accommodate the partners’ demand to the extent possible. With a kind of agreement among Mahakutami partners, the Congress is likely to announce a list of about 40 seats on October 5. If the Congress has to forego some of the seats where it perceives that it is stronger than other parties, it may lead to disappointment of the party rank and ﬁle in those seats. Hence, to avoid any rebel trouble, the TPCC chief appealed to the leaders to be restraint during the allotment of the seats.
