Signalling a climbdown, DMK on Sunday indicated the possibility of joining a Congress-led Government at the Centre, saying it needed more time to consider the issue.
An indication to this effect was given by DMK President M Karunanidhi after a 45-minute meeting with Congress chief Sonia Gandhi at her 10, Janpath residence in New Delhi.
Karunanidhi, who spoke in Tamil, told reporters he had handed over to the Congress President a letter of support of 16 party MPs addressed to President APJ Abdul Kalam.
Observing that Gandhi has requested him to participate in the Government, he said he had sought more time to think on it.
The DMK chief had said only on Saturday that the party's Working Committee had decided against being part of the Government.
