Chennai: A day after DMK announced its
decision to pull out of the Congress-led UPA government, the
party said on Sunday that its ministers would submit their
resignation on Monday.

"Our ministers will go to Delhi to submit their
resignation tomorrow," DMK senior leader and Lok Sabha MP, T R
Baalu, told reporters at the party headquarters Anna
Arivalayam here.
The party has six members in the Union Cabinet
including M K Alagiri and Dayanidhi Maran.
Baalu also said that no one from Congress had got in
touch with the Dravidian party after it had announced the
decision to pull out from the cabinet.
The DMK, infuriated by the Congress remaining adamant
over its demand for 63 seats for the April 13 Assembly polls,
had yesterday announced its decision to pull out of the
cabinet, saying Congress did not want the Dravidian party to
continue in the alliance.

It had, however, said it would extend issue-based
support to the government.
