New Delhi, May 2 (ANI): Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M. Karunanidhi will meet the Prime Minister, Dr. Manmohan Singh, and the Congress President, Sonia Gandhi, in the backdrop of Telecom Minister A Raja being in the middle of the raging 2G controversy.

Raja represents the DMK in the Union Cabinet and is reportedly close to Karunanidhi.

Earlier in the week, opposition stalled proceedings in parliament over a demand for Raja's resignation due to alleged irregularities in 2G-spectrum allotment.

However, DMK sources have ruled out the possibility of Raja resigning.

Sources said Raja has emerged as the Dalit face of the DMK and enjoys good rapport with Karunanidhi.

Though Raja is embroiled in two major allegations-the spectrum allotment-and his alleged telephone call to a Madras High Court judge for a favourable order Karunanidhi has remained soft on him.

Karunanidhi will also meet President Pratibha Patil and will invite her for the inauguration of the World Tamil Conference. (ANI)
