Karunanidhi hints at coalition govt after assembly polls
Chennai, Mar 29 (PTI)
Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M Karunanidhi today 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."
Congess, DMK''s key ally, is learnt to have made a pitch for power-sharing in the event of DMK-led alliance coming back to power.
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 CNN-IBN television channel.
These two members of his family were share-holders in the company, he said.
