The day Prime Minister Manmohan Singh reshuffled his cabinet, UPA ally DMK said it would decide on the replacements for A Raja and Dayanidhi Maran in the cabinet at the party's coming general council meeting.

Interacting with the media at the DMK headquarters on Tuesday, party chief M Karunanidhi said: "We will decide on all issues relating to the Centre and the ministries at our general council meeting."

Describing the reshuffle as "incomplete" Karunanidhi said he would comment on the exercise when it was over.

The two-day DMK meeting will begin on July 23 at Coimbatore. The subjects on anvil include the party's strategy to get its Rajya Sabha MP Kanimozhi out on bail and fight her legal battle in the 2G scam.

Karunanidhi said he had not broached the topic of his daughter with Union finance minister Pranab Mukherjee when he came calling on Saturday.

He also said he had not asked about the fate of the slots of former ministers Raja and Maran.

Party spokesperson TKS Elangovan, whose name figured as a ministerial candidate, had indicated on Sunday that the party would first discuss the issue.
