Chennai, Mar 29 (IBNS) Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) supremo MKarunanidhi on Friday made it clear that his party will not extend support, in any form, to the Congress-led United Progressive Alliance (UPA) government.

"We withdrew from the UPA as the Centre was doing nothing for Tamils in Sri Lanka. Now there is no question of extending any form of support to the UPA. We have already came out from the cabinet," Karunanidhi said.

Asked if DMK will support the Centre if there is a change in power, the former Tamil Nadu chief minister said: "No matter which political party comes to power in the Centre, we will only support it if it accepts our demands."

Senior DMK leaders, after pulling out of the UPA, met in Chennai on Monday and despite differences of opinion among factions decided not to lend any outside support too to the Congress led government at the centre, said reports.

The meeting was held to pass a resolution against the UPA government for not taking a tough resolution against Sri Lanka at the Geneva session of the UN human rights body, which has just concluded.
