Breaking his silence on FDI in multi-brand retail, DMK chief M Karunanidhi on Tuesday said his party will not support the Centre's decision to allow foreign investment in the sector.

"We are not in favour of the decision to allow FDI (in multi-brand retail)," he told reporters.

DMK, a key constituent of the ruling UPA government, had recently refused to clarify its stand on the decision to allow FDI in multi-brand retail.

"Small and medium retail traders in Tamil Nadu are apprehensive that Foreign Direct Investment would greatly affect them. We would discuss and take a decision on this (FDI) keeping their interest in mind," Karunanidhi had said last week.
