The Congress on Thursday said action against DMK leaders in the 2G scam will have no bearing on its ties with the Dravidian party.
The party also dismissed suggestions that it was likely to succumb to ally pressure in this matter.
"There is absolutely no question of party acting under any pressure. CBI is investigating the case under the monitoring of the Supreme Court. We feel our ties with DMK have continued for years seeing good and bad times. I do not think the on-going investigations in the 2G issue will have any adverse impact on Congress-DMK ties," party spokesperson Jayanthi Natarajan told reporters.
Natarajan also insisted that Congress and DMK are separate parties "but working with great harmony as allies for the success of the coalition."
