DMK chief M. Karunanidhi, who had welcomed a prospective alliance with DMDK for the Lok Sabha polls, on Thursday said no talks was held in this regard. “No talks had been held; so there is no question of any improvement,” he told reporters in Chennai when asked if there were any improvement in talks between the two parties.

Mr. Karunanidhi’s remarks come in the wake of reports in a section of media that DMK was holding alliance discussions with DMDK for the coming Lok Sabha polls.

Recently, the 90 year-old leader had welcomed the idea of the two parties striking an electoral tie-up and had even publicly rapped his Madurai-based son and former Union Minister M. K. Alagiri for opining against the alliance.

Mr. Alagiri’s younger brother M. K. Stalin is favourably disposed towards a DMK-DMDK tie-up.
