Ties with DMK will remain strong, says Congress

New Delhi: Congress on Friday dismissed suggestions that its ties with key ally DMK will undergo strain in case of any action against Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M Karunanidhi`s daughter Kanimozhi in the 2G spectrum case.

"Our (Congress-DMK) relationship is very good, very strong and it will continue," AICC general secretary in-charge of Tamil Nadu Ghulam Nabi Azad told reporters on the sidelines of a function here.

He was asked if "possible arrest" of Kanimozhi will affect the ties between the two parties.

Azad`s remarks came on a day when DMK MP Kanimozhi appeared before a special court, responding to summons for her alleged involvement in the 2G spectrum scam and sought bail on grounds of being a woman.

In its supplementary charge sheet filed in a special court on April 25, the CBI had accused Kanimozhi of entering into a criminal conspiracy with former Telecom Minister A Raja for allegedly accepting illegal gratification through Kalaignar TV — a channel run by the ruling DMK in Tamil Nadu, in which the money related to the 2G scam was routed.
