New Delhi: In order to straighten out the situation after DMK, a key ally quit United Progressive Alliance (UPA) over the Sri Lanka issue, Congress core group met on Tuesday.

The meeting is being attended by UPA chief Sonia Gandhi, Congress in charge of Tamil Nadu Ghulam Nabi Azad, Finance Minister P. Chidambaram, Parliamentary Affairs Minister Kamal Nath and Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde.

The core group meeting was necessitated after DMK pulled out of the UPA government for allowing `watering down` of the US resolution against Sri Lanka at the UNHRC and not considering its suggestions on the matter.
However giving a window to the Congress, Karunanidhi said that if the UPA government accepts their demands by Friday and reworks the resolution against Sri Lanka then he may do a rethink on withdrawing support.
