DMK goes easy on Congress at party meet

CHENNAI: After snapping ties with the Congress and pulling out its ministers from the Union government, the DMK went easy on the Centre on Monday during an executive committee meeting held at the party headquarters in the city. The DMK general secretary K Anbazhagan reportedly told leaders that the party is not ready to topple the government. "The Congress gave our party a lot of problems. But, we cannot allow communal forces to form a government," an executive committee member, who attended the meeting told TOI.

DMK chief M Karunanidhi, his son and party treasurer M K Stalin, parliamentary party leader T R Baalu, Rajya Sabha MP Kanimozhi and other seniors participated in the meeting. Actor Kushboo also participated as a special invitee. Karunanidhi did not speak at the meeting as he was suffering from a throat infection, sources said.

His older son and former Union minister M K Alagiri skipped the meeting. "Am I the only one skipping the DMK executive meet?" he shot back when reporters in Madurai asked him why he was not in Chennai to attend the meeting. "Do all invitees attend the meet?" he asked. In what appears to be a show of rebellion, he left for Madurai this morning along with his wife Kanthi Alagiri.

DMK meet passed 16 resolutions. In one resolution, the party reiterated its call for India to move a strong resolution against Sri Lanka in Geneva. It also said the upcoming session of the Commonwealth heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) in Colombo should be cancelled, failing which, India should boycott the session.

The DMK explained why it quit the UPA. Another resolution asked the Centre to take steps to protect Indian fishermen.
