Apologise & we will revive ties, DMK to PMK
June 20, 2008 13:45 IST
The DMK stand was revealed by party president M Karunanidhi to Viduthalai Chiruthaigal Katchi president Tol Tirumavalavan, when the latter called on him at his residence on Friday morning.
Tirumavalavan disclosed this to media persons after emerging from the 10 minute meeting with Karunanidhi.
On June 17, the DMK had severed its ties with PMK, a constituent of the Democratic Progressive Alliance in the state.
A meeting of the DMK high-level committee chaired by Karunanidhi adopted a resolution that day, stating that the ties with the PMK cannot be continued in view of the 'insult' heaped on it by the PMK leadership day in and day out.
Karunanidhi had referred to threats made by Guru against DMK leaders and said he heard the CD containing his speech for the first time only on June 13 last. The resolution had said that PMK leader Dr Ramadoss had neither denied Guru's speech and had not even expressed regret for it.
