DMK considering PM’s offer, says KarunanidhiMay 23rd, 2009 - 9:10 pm ICT by ANI
Chennai, May 23 (ANI): Dravida Munnettra Kazhagam (DMK) supremo and Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M. Karunanidhi on Saturday said his party was considering Prime Minister Manmohan Singh’s offer made on Friday about the berth allocations.
Karunanidhi, however, blamed a propaganda behind rumours that there was any confusion prevailing over distribution of berths between the DMK and Congress party at the Centre.
“We are still discussing about portfolio. We appreciate Prime Minister has called and asked to join the Union Cabinet. There was some false propaganda that there was confusion about portfolios,” said Karunanidhi.
DMK-led front in Tamil Nadu including Congress had registered a thumping victory, winning 27 of the 39 seats in the southern state.
But Congress party has refused to give DMK four Cabinet berths, independent charge for one minister of state and another minister of state. (ANI)
