"No talks had been held; so there is no question of any improvement," he said when asked if there were any improvement in talks between the two parties.

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, Karuna, 90, 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 MK Alagiri for opining against the alliance.

Alagiri's younger brother MK Stalin is favourably disposed towards a DMK-DMDK tie-up.
