Chennai: Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M Karunanidhi on Tuesday hinted at his party DMK forming a coalition
government after the state Assembly Elections if the situation
warrants so.

To a question on the post-poll scenario and if DMK would go
in for coalition rule, Karunanidhi said if the `voting
pattern` changed and there was a situation wherein only such a
rule was possible, "we will then discuss it with other parties
and decide".

Congress, DMK`s key ally, is learnt to have made a pitch for
power-sharing in the event of DMK-led alliance coming back to

Karunanidhi charged some politicians with "blowing out
of proportion" the 2G spectrum scam.

"Only the channel, Kalaignar TV, is named after me but I
have no rights in it. My daughter (Kanimozhi) and wife
(Dayalu) hold 20 and 60 per cent respectively, besides (its
CEO) Sharad Kumar having 20 per cent. Kalaignar TV is not
owned by Karunanidhi," he told a news channel.

These two members of his family were share-holders in the
company, he said.
