Chennai, March 9 (IANS) The AIADMK and the two main Left parties remained deadlocked Saturday over sharing of seats for the Tamil Nadu assembly elections.
Leaders of the Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M) and the Communist Party of India (CPI) told IANS that there was no progress in the talks.
“There is no news,” CPI-M state chief G. Ramakrishnan said. Added another party colleague: “It is for the AIADMK to decide. We have nothing more to say.”
In 2006, as part of the DMK-led front, the CPI-M contested in 13 seats and won nine while the CPI contested in 10 and won six.
In 2009, the two parties parted ways with the DMK after withdrawing support to the United Progressive Alliance government.
