Urging DMK president M Karunanidhi not to support the BJP to form the government at the Centre after the elections, Union Finance Minister P Chidambaram on Tuesday asked the DMK to come out openly on its stand after the elections.

Chidambaram, while refusing to consider the clarification given by M Karunanidhi for being a part of National Democratic Alliance led by BJP in 1999, said that it would be unfortunate on part of DMK leader if he decides to align with the saffron party. The DMK leader had said his party had not compromised on its core values of secularism even while it was part of the government led by Atal Bihari Vajpayee.

The DMK must not go along NDA if BJP intended to form government as it would be led by Narendra Modi, who was criticised by Vajpayee. Chidambaram charged Modi with being against the Christian and Muslim minorities and said Karunanidhi should openly declare that he would not support the formation of a BJP government after the elections.

The DMK should ensure that a secular government would be formed at the Centre and it should not give room for any doubts about supporting a ‘communal government’.
