DMK pulls out of UPA, says Karuna

Days after threatening to pull out of the UPA over the Lankan Tamil issue, DMK chief M Karunanidhi on Tuesday said that his party will no longer support the coalition at the Centre.
The DMK chief said his party will not accept the Government’s stand on the resolution against Sri Lanka at the UN Human Rights Council.
“DMK’s support to the Central Government under these circumstances is impossible. Our support for the fight of Tamil freedom and human rights is not over”, he said while addressing a media conference in Chennai.
DMK, which has 18 MPs in the Lok Sabha also ruled out outside support to the Government.
Karunanidhi said DMK Ministers will quit the Government either on Tuesday or on Wednesday.
However, he said that he might reconsider DMK’s withdrawal if the Government would pass a resolution in Parliament before March 21.

“If the Parliament passes a resolution ahead of the vote, we might change our stance”, he added.
Meanwhile, sources said the Government is ready to bring a resolution on the Lanka Tamil issue in Parliament.
