Chennai: Tamil Nadu Minister and senior DMK leader Duraimurugan, a member of the party's poll panel involved in seat-sharing talks with Congress, on Wednesday denied reports that he had made some remarks which had infuriated Congress leaders.

"A section of media has reported as if I made some funny remarks (on Congress' demand for increased seats) during the (second round of) seat-sharing talks with Congress following which they got furious. There is no truth in this and no such incident took place," the law minister said in a statement here.

He said members of the Congress delegation were also "well-aware" of it and added that no person other than the delegation members were present during the parleys.

The Congress is represented by senior leaders, including Union Ministers P Chidambaram and G K Vasan, while the DMK panel comprises of party Treasurer and Deputy Chief Minister M K Stalin and Duraimurugan among others.

"Section of media is writing conjured up stories which are just figment of their imagination. They are doing so only to create confusion in the alliance to please AIADMK leader Jayalalithaa. But their efforts will not fructify," he said.

Duraimurugan said he was issuing the clarification in order to scotch doubts in readers' minds whether such reports were true.
