Chennai: DMK leader and Union Minister MK Alagiri on Sunday said his party did not expect the Congress to ""come back" for a possible patch up, a day after DMK announced pulling out of the Union cabinet following failure of seat sharing talks with Congress.
"We don`t expect Congress to come back," Alagiri, elder son of Chief Minister M Karunanidhi, told reporters at the party headquarters here responding to queries if he expected the Congress to approach the DMK to resolve the stalemate.
He said it was DMK, which had taken a decision to come out of the Union cabinet, and even in the event of the Congress not figuring in the DMK-led alliance, his party`s prospects would not be affected in the April 13 polls.
Earlier at Tiruchirappalli, Alagiri said only Karunanidhi would decide about continuing alliance with the Congress.
Talking to newsmen after declaring open a Steel rolling mill constructed at a cost of Rs 310 crore near Musiri about 30 km from here, Alagiri said he would be going to Delhi tomorrow, and "other things" would be decided by the party leader (Karunanidhi).
