Chennai: DMK will discuss its 'organisational matters' at a two-day brainstorming session in Coimbatore next month, when the executive and the general council will meet under its chief M Karunanidhi.

The crucial general council, the party's top decision making body, will discuss 'organisational matters,' DMK general secretary K Anbazhagan said in statement here today.

The executive will be held on July 23 and the general council the next day, Anbazhagan said.

The general council is likely to take stock of the political situation arising out of recent assembly polls in which DMK was trounced by its archrival AIADMK, besides reviewing its ties with Congress.

This would be the first set of meetings that will review the poll debacle of the Dravidian party even as partymen are said to be angry over the arrest of Karunanidhi's daughter Kanimozhi, MP, for her alleged role in the 2G spectrum allocation scam.

They had been demanding a review of ties with seven year-old ally Congress, which has been severely strained.

While the 88-year-old patriarch had said on his birthday on June 3 that 'a bad friendship would end in trouble,' apparently meaning Congress, Karunanidhi had later clarified that ties were 'good' with the national party.

He had hinted at the possibility of reviewing ties with Congress recently when he said that the general council was the authorised body to discuss and decide on alliances.
