"Let us not jump to any conclusion. DMK has said they would reconsider if Parliament passes a resolution on the Lankan Tamils issue," NCP vice president Praful Patel told reporters in New Delhi.

NCP, led by agriculture minister Sharad Pawar, has nine members in the Lok Sabha.

DMK chief M Karunanidhi on Tuesday quit the UPA and the Union government expressing dismay on India's stand over Sri Lanka at the United National Human Rights Council (UNHRC).

He said DMK was ready to reconsider its decision if Parliament adopted resolution against Sri Lanka before March 21.
