Tie-up with secular party for next Lok Sabha poll: Karunanidhi

February 3rd, 2012 - 11:29 pm ICT by IANS  

Chennai, Feb 3 (IANS) The DMK party would align with a secular party having the nation’s interest in mind in the next Lok Sabha elections, party president M. Karunanidhi said Friday.

Speaking to reporters here after chairing the party’s general council meeting, Karunanidhi said: “The Lok Sabha elections are far away. The party will align with only secular parties having national interest.”

Denying any discussion on the changes in the party leadership structure at the meeting, Karunanidhi said the issue will be decided at the party elections.

Queried about his retirement plans, Karunanidhi said even his wives are in favour of him stepping down but he was not able to quit.

Strongly disagreeing with the comments of union Communications Minister Kapil Sibal on the procedure adopted for allotment of 2G spectrum, Karunanidhi said what former telecom minister A. Raja followed was the policy laid down in 2003.

On the party’s candidate for the ensuing by-election in the Sankarankoil seat, he said the party would announce its candidate once the election date is announced.
