Senior Congress leader Pranab Mukherjee is likely to hold final round of talks today with Trinamool chief Mamata Banerjee to resolve differences over seat sharing between the two parties for the Assembly polls in West Bengal.

"Yes, the Union Finance Minister (Mukherjee) telephoned our party leader. I have heard that he is coming to Kolkata tomorrow and the two are likely to have a meeting (on seat sharing)," Trinamool Congress General Secretary Mukul Roy, a close confidante of Mamata, told PTI.

The first two round of formal talks between the two parties was held in New Delhi on Sunday and Monday.

Sources in Delhi said the Congress, which earlier demanded 100 seats, is likely to agree on contesting 70 plus seats. Trinamool Congress has revised its offer from 45 to 64 seats.
