Chennai, May 30 (IANS) DMK president M. Karunanidhi Wednesday threatened to pull his party out of the UPA government if it did not roll back the hike in petrol prices.

Leading the party’s protest against the petrol price hike and the increase in milk, power and bus fares in Tamil Nadu, he said: “Being part of the (UPA) coalition has not prevented us from protesting against anti-people policies. If our basic principles are threatened, we will persuade the centre to correct it.”
