The DMK will back its leader and former telecom minister A Raja on the issue of his willingness to appear before the joint parliamentary committee probing the 2G spectrum scam, in case the Congress raises it at the UPA coordination committee meeting on Tuesday.

"If the Congress raises the issue..., asks us, we have to stand by Raja," party spokesman TK Elangovan told reporters when asked whether the issue could be raised by the DMK at the coordination committee meeting convened by PM Manmohan Singh.

Elangovan said Raja's request to appear before the JPC was a "new development and our leader may advise us" about future course of action.

Raja, in a letter to the Lok Sabha Speaker Meira Kumar, had on Friday volunteered to appear before the JPC as a witness to tell the members about the "untold truths" of the entire matter.
