Chennai: The talks to identify the seats to be
contested by Congress in alliance with DMK for Tamil Nadu
assembly polls remained inconclusive today with the 5-member
Congress committee, supposed to wrap up the deal, not turning
up at the ruling party headquarters on Saturday.

Four round of talks held in the past two days remained
inconclusive.
Congress sources said the talks could not be completed as
there were differences over some constituencies.

While Congress would get the 48 seats it had contested in
the last elections, discussions were on to decide the
remaining 15 seats, the sources said.
The DMK election committee panel headed by Deputy Chief
Minister M K Stalin was busy since morning conducting
interviews with the party`s prospective candidates for the
fifth consecutive day.
