“Top leaders, including party president Vijayakant, were holding parleys with BJP leaders in Chennai on Tuesday. The talks are continuing. There are still issues in identification of constituencies as DMDK, BJP and PMK are vying for same seats,” said a senior leader and party MLA.

Sources in the PMK also said that they had not been informed about any formal announcement from the BJP side.
