Chennai, Jul 10 (UNI) Communist Party of India (CPI), Tamil Nadu unit secretary D Pandian today denied having said the party would withdraw its support to the DMK government in the state as fallout of Left parties withdrawing support to the Congress-led UPA government at the Centre on the Indo-US civil nuclear deal.
Mr Pandian, in a statement here dismissed as totally 'false and baseless,' the reports appearing in a section of the media that the CPI would withdraw its support to the DMK government. The party's central administrative committee would discuss the issue.
He said while talking to newspersons in Tiruchirapalli yesterday, he had not expressed any view about elections or alliance and a section of the media had misquoted him for sensationalisation.
The central administrative committee is meeting on July 12 and 13 only to discuss the India's Uranium pact with US and the political fall out, he added.
Making it clear that the central administrative committee meeting has not been convened to discuss the alliance issue, Mr Pandian said ''sensational reports'' appearing in media need not be taken as party's stand.
Only the resolution published in party organ ''Janasakthi'' should be taken as party's official stand, he said and appealed to the party cadres not to air views on alliance or election.
