Kanimozhi, who is the daughter of DMK supremo M Karunanidhi, met Mukherjee in the Parliament. As per reports, she is understood to have explained the party's position on the issue, reasserting that Raja should not be removed from the cabinet.
While the BJP-led Opposition stalled the Parliament for the second day on the alleged irregularities in the allocation of the 2G spectrum, the DMK continued to defend A Raja stating that whatever the Telecom Minister did was according to the TRAI norms.
"Why should he step down? Whatever he did was according to TRAI norms," party spokesperson T K S Elangovan said.
"Let the CBI inquiry into the issue end first," he added.
