Even as the seat-sharing talks between the BJP and the DMDK continued for the second day, the hitch over numbers and identification of seats remained unresolved with the PMK.

According to sources, the PMK has been offered only eight seats and it has also been asked to give up a couple of constituencies in favour of other alliance partners.

BJP president Pon. Radhakrishnan, however, denied any such differences.

“We are holding talks. We will adopt give and take policy and the BJP alliance will be a great success,” he told reporters at the party headquarters on Saturday.

Asked who would lead the alliance in the State, he clarified that in Tamil Nadu too the alliance would be called the National Democratic Alliance (NDA).

DMDK youth wing leader L.K. Sudheesh, who participated in the talks, said it would take a couple of rounds to finalise seat-sharing. “Our part leader Vijayakant will release the list of candidates,” he said.
