DMK president M. Karunanidhi on Sunday made it clear that his party would not seek more berths in the Union Cabinet.
Reacting to media speculations about his party’s stand vis-à-vis the proposed Cabinet expansion, Mr. Karunanidhi said no one from the DMK would join the Ministry. Two of the DMK’s Cabinet Ministers in the UPA government, A. Raja and Dayanidhi Maran, resigned in the wake of the 2G spectrum scam and the party has so far not sought replacements for them. M.K. Alagiri is the only Cabinet Minister from the DMK and the party has four Ministers of State.
Mr. Karunanidhi, who is also the chairman of the Tamil Eelam Supporters Organisation (TESO) said the presence of Sri Lankan military in Tamil areas would be discussed at the TESO meeting to be held on October 3.
