Onboard PM`s Special Aircraft: Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Friday said he would not like to "pre-judge" whether Congress will extend support to former UPA ally DMK`s candidate for Rajya Sabha in Tamil Nadu.
"I can`t say on behalf of the Congress High Command. These are matters which are discussed at the highest level in our party. It will not be proper for me to pre-judge what stand the Congress party will take," he told reporters on his way back from Japan and Thailand.
He was asked whether Congress would support if DMK approaches you its support from five party MLAs contingent for the Rajya Sabha seat.

DMK has 23 members in Tamil Nadu Assembly and on its own it cannot ensure the victory of its candidate.
