The final straw
Extract from the DMK resolution.Updated: Mar 05, 2011 23:46 IST
“Even after the DMK had agreed to the Congress demand of 60 seats, their fresh demand for 63 seats and also the choice of constituencies, makes it clear that the Congress is not willing to continue in the DMK-led front.
Such new conditions also made us suspect that the Congress was using differences over seat sharing as an excuse to push the DMK out of the UPA alliance.
Under these circumstances the DMK has decided that it would like to free itself from (the UPA) and not continue in the Central government and extend only issue based support to the Centre,” the resolution passed by the party’s high power committee on Friday evening declared.
