Congress still keen on sharing power in DMK Government

Written by: Staff

Chennai, Nov 20 (UNI) The Congress in Tamil Nadu today reiterated its desire to share power in the DMK Government, which is 22 short of a simple majority in the 234-member House.

Asked whether the Congress, a key constituent of the DMK-led Democratic Progressive Alliance (DPA) in the state, was keen on power sharing, Congress Legislature Party leader D Sudarsanam quipped, ''we are running a political party not a mutt.'' ''All political parties, whether they are big or small, have an aim to capture power. There is nothing wrong in seeking a share in the power,'' he told newspersons, after chairing a meeting of Congress MLAs at party headquarters 'Satyamurthy Bhavan' here.

He said the Congress MLAs had already passed a resolution in this regard and had forwarded to the party high command.

''It is for Party President Sonia Gandhi to decide on the issue,'' he added.

To a question, Mr Sudarsanam said there was no need for setting up a coordination committee, comprising DPA allies, for the smooth functioning of the DMK Government.

On the squabbles among DPA allies over recently-concluded local body elections, he said the issue would be resolved through talks.
