Cong rules out threat to UPA from DMK
New Delhi: Congress on Friday ruled out any
threat to the government over DMK`s attempts to corner it on
the issue of alleged human rights violations against Tamils in
"I do not see any such possibility. DMK MPs were in full
strength in the House today," party spokesperson Manish
Tewari told reporters when asked whether there was any threat
to UPA from DMK MPs.
Speaking on condition of anonymity, a leader dismissed
the possibility of DMK Ministers` resignations on March 23
when the US-sponsored resolution against Sri Lanka on alleged
war crimes, which they want the government to support, comes
up before the UN.
"There will not be any resignation," he said.
MPs from Tamil Nadu have been pressuring the government
to back the resolution categorically. The government has so
far been advocating a cautious approach.
