Dismissing reports that DMK was going soft on Congress-led UPA despite pulling out of it, party chief M Karunanidhi on Friday ruled out even outside support to the ruling coalition on the ground that it failed to accept his party’s demands on Sri Lankan Tamils issue.
Recalling DMK’s announcement on withdrawal of support to UPA on March 19 over the Tamils issue, Karunanidhi said on that day itself he had made it clear that there would be no outside support and his party would not be responsible if “communal forces” came to power.
Firm on stand
He dismissed as “mischievous” reports about DMK extending outside support to the UPA government and that it would not allow its fall.
“Our stand is that any goverment at the Centre should accept our demand for a credible, independent probe into war crimes by the Sri Lankan government and the genocide besides other resolutions adopted at TESO conference and party Executive.PTI
