2G issue not to impact alliance with DMK: Congress

Buoyed by DMK`s decision not to pull out of the UPA Government, Congress on Friday expressed confidence that its alliance with the party would continue in the same spirit.



New Delhi: Buoyed by DMK`s decision not
to pull out of the UPA Government, Congress on Friday expressed
confidence that its alliance with the party would continue in
the same spirit.
"We are allies. We have been allies for long. Our
alliance will continue in that spirit," party spokesperson
Jayanthi Natarjan said, adding that the 2G issue will have no
impact on the alliance.

She was reacting after after DMK Chief M Karunanidhi
said in Chennai that he was not disappointed over Congress not
helping his party in the 2G spectrum issue.

There was intense speculation after a meeting of the
party`s High Power Committee that DMK might pull out its
ministers from the UPA government.

Another Congress spokesperson Manish Tewari termed it
a classic case of "raising the ghost and then slaying it" by
the Opposition.
"DMK has only reiterated the status quo" was his brief
refrain to the development.

Karunanidhi said the DMK`s General Council, at its
meeting next month, would decide on ties with other parties as
it was the only authorised body to take such important
decisions.

He has also rejected the Congress contention that it
was defeated in the Tamil Nadu assembly polls due to the 2G
scam. "Some vested interests due to jealousy had blown the 2G
issue out of proportion."

The editorial of Congress Sandesh has held 2G scam
responsible for the defeat of the party in Tamil Nadu and
Puducherry.
