DMK President M Karunanidhi's party which is leading a five party Front for the April 24 Lok Sabha polls in the state, today welcomed Tamil Nadu Tauhith Jamath's secision to extend support to it.

"I am happy and welcome the announcement by that organisation to support the DMk in 36 of the 39 constituencies and thank them," he said in a statement here.

He opined that Tauhith Jamath's decision would strengthen the DMK Front's efforts to support only a secular government at the Centre. They have confidence that only DMK party can protect minorities in the state.

Mr Karunanidhi also recalled that the organisation's decision to support the DMK was as a result of his appeal during the DMK's state conference at Tiruchirapalli seeking its support.

The state goes to poll on April 24.
