Chennai: For the second consecutive day, talks between the DMK and Congress to identify the 63 constituencies the latter will contest in the April 13 Tamil Nadu Assembly elections remained inconclusive on Friday

The two parties failed to finalise the constituencies and are scheduled to meet again on Saturday

Speaking to reporters at the end of the fourth round of talks, TNCC president K V Thangkabalu asserted that there was no delay in finalising the constituencies.
"It is a process which has to continue. There is no delay. We will come back tomorrow morning... We are happy," he said at the DMK headquarters Anna Arivalayam here.
He also said there was nothing happening on the other side, apparently referring to the deadlock persisting in AIADMK-led combine over allocation of seats to MDMK and Left parties
So far, the AIADMK had concluded seat-sharing pact with actor Vijaykanth-led DMDK allotting 41 seats besides giving a few seats to some smaller parties.
Under the seat-sharing agreement reached between the two partners of the UPA on Tuesday, the Congress will contest 63 seats and DMK 121 in the 234 constituencies in Tamil Nadu

Congress sources had earlier indicated that the present 
exercise would be concluded by this evening
