The Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam's general council will meet in July. The decision was taken at the party high-level committee's emergency meeting on Friday.
DMK president M. Karunanidhi, who chaired the meeting, later told reporters that it was customary for the general council to deliberate on issues regarding the party's tie-up with other parties.
When a reporter asked whether the announcement on the general council meeting could be regarded as a deadline for the party's relationship with the Central government, he retorted: “Why are you so intent on us fixing deadlines for the Centre?”
To another question on the party's defeat in the Assembly elections, he said it was due to the “efforts of some Brahmins.” He emphasised that the 2G spectrum allocation issue was not responsible for the defeat.
The party committee, in one of its resolutions, described as soothing the verdict of the Madras High Court on Equitable Standard Education. It thanked the court and called upon the All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam government to implement it.
The committee said that if the State government failed to provide immediately a suitable accommodation to the library of the Central Institute of Classical Tamil, it would take further course of action with the support of Tamil scholars.
The party also criticised the AIADMK government for its decisions on the merger of Anna Universities of Technology and withdrawal of the move to revive the Legislative Council. The committee adopted 10 resolutions.
