With the assembly polls just two months away in Tamil Nadu, DMK and its alliance partner, Congress, held the first round of the crucial seat-sharing meeting on Thursday.

However, the first round has ended without any consensus between the parties on the numbers yet.

After the preliminary talks, Congress leaders left the DMK office. As per reports, they will discuss themselves and are likely to come back later.

The Congress leaders who were present in the meeting include Oommen Chandy, Randeep Surjewala and Dinesh Gundu Rao. From DMK's side, Kanimozhi, TR Baalu and TKS Elangovan were present.

Congress leader KS Alagiri said, "We've conveyed our opinion, they've conveyed theirs. We haven't discussed the numbers yet."

Rao added that the talks went positive from both sides.

Elections are likely to be held for the 234-member Tamil Nadu assembly in April-May this year.
