DMK won't support UPA from outside

Chennai, Mar 25 : Senior Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) leaders, after pulling out of the UPA, met in Chennai on Monday and despite differences of opinion among factions decided not to lend any outside support too to the Congress led government at the centre, said reports.

The emergency executive meeting of the party ended.

The meeting was held to pass a resolution against the UPA government for not taking a tough resolution against Sri Lanka at the Geneva session of the UN human rights body, which has just concluded.

However, DMK supremo M Karunanidhi's elder son MK Alagiri, who had separately handed his resignation letter to the Prime Minister, did not attend the executive council's session and went to Madurai, media reports said.

"Party sources said this was Mr Alagiri's method of protesting against the fact that he had not been consulted about the DMK's decision to quit the UPA government. Sources close to Mr Alagiri said he heard for the first time of this news on television channels. The DMK's pullout was allegedly fashioned by Mr Alagiri's younger brother and political rival, MK Stalin," NDTV reported.

DMK leaders deliberated on the future strategy of the party at the meeting after pulling out of the UPA.

The DMK's executive meet is to pass around 12 to 15 resolutions in the same, one of which is expected to be the demand for New Delhi to stop the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) at Colombo later this year, said media reports.
