Karunanidhi hints at pulling out of UPA Govt on NLC issue

Written by: Staff

Chennai, July 6 (UNI) In a surprising development, Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) President and Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M Karunanidhi today indicated that the DMK would pull out of the Congress-led UPA government at the Centre if it failed to rescind its decision to divest equity in the public sector Neyveli Lignite Corporation (NLC).

''As the Centre is not in a position to concede the demand of NLC workers to drop the decision, I am wondering whether the DMK should be part of the UPA Government and share responsibility for its decision,'' he told newspersons at his party headquarters 'Anna Arivalayam' here.

Mr Karunanidhi said he had directed the Union Ministers belonging to the DMK to inform the Prime Minister Manmohan Singh about the party's stand.
