DMK denies signing letter to Obama

 The Dravida Munnetra Kazagam (DMK), former ally of the United Progressive Alliance, denied that party MPs had signed the controversial letter asking US President Barack Obama to deny Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi a United States visa.

In a statement on Thursday, DMK president M Karunanidhi said that action would be taken against party MPs if they had signed such a letter.

“If anyone indulged in such activity without consulting the high command, action
will be taken against them,” he said.

“When I inquired, my party MPs said they did not sign any such letter. Even my party does not accept them signing it,” he said.

“As far as our party is concerned, it will not interfere with the foreign policy and internal matters of the Centre,” the DMK chief added.

His statement came in the backdrop over a letter purportedly signed by MPs, including Sitaram Yechury of the CPM and the DMK’s K P Ramalingam, to Obama. Both the MPs have denied signing such a letter.
