Chennai, Jun 28 (UNI) Tamil Nadu Congress Committee(TNCC) president M Krishnasamy today called on DMK president and Chief Minister M Karunanidhi this evening, amid reports that he might be removed from the post.
After the about 30-minutes-long discussion, Mr Krishnasamy told waiting mediapersons that he discussed the present political situation and the alliance with the Chief Minister.
Asked about Union Minister E V K S Elangovan's reported remarks that the TNCC would have a new chief in a couple of days, he said it was for the party High Command to decide.
Mr Krishnasamy refused to attach any significance to his recent Delhi visit, stating that he often visited Delhi and there was nothing big about it.
The Congress leader replied in the negative when asked whether he discussed about the ouster of Pattali Makkal Katchi (PMK) from the DMK-led Democratic Progressive Alliance (DPA) in the state.
Where was the question of discussing the issue when the DMK had already severed ties with the PMK, Mr Krishnasamy, who is closely related to PMK founder-leader S Ramadoss, asked.
He said the Congress-led UPA government at the Centre was taking steps to bring down inflation and the spiralling prices of essentials.
Mr Krishnasamy said the Congress-DMK alliance was strong and the alliance would sweep the coming Lok Sabha polls.
They would explain to the people the achievements of the Union and state governments and seek votes, he said, adding that the spiralling prices would not affect the victory prospects of the Congress in the Lok Sabha elections as the Centre was taking steps to check price rise.
