Markets crash as DMK quits UPA

New Delhi: The Congress core group met here Tuesday after the DMK quit the United Progressive Alliance (UPA) over the Sri Lanka issue.

The group includes UPA chief Sonia Gandhi, Congress in charge of Tamil Nadu Ghulam Nabi Azad, Finance Minister P. Chidambaram, Parliamentary Affairs Minister Kamal Nath and Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde.


Meanwhile, Finance Minister P. Chidambaram said the Congress-led UPA government is stable and enjoys majority support in parliament despite the DMK's exit.

"The government is stable, the government enjoys majority in the Lok Sabha," he told the media here after DMK chief M. Karunanidhi announced his party was pulling out of the UPA over the Sri Lanka issue.

"The government is stable and will continue," he added.

The DMK quit the UPA and its government Tuesday voicing dismay over India's stand over Sri Lanka at the UNHRC.

DMK chief M. Karunanidhi announced that his party could not accept New Delhi's bid to bail out Sri Lanka which faces charges of committing human rights abuses on the Tamil community.

"Continuing in this government will be an injustice to the Sri Lankan Tamils," the former Tamil Nadu chief minister told the media. The DMK has 18 members in the Lok Sabha and five ministers in Prime Minister Manmohan Singh's council of ministers.

Karunanidhi said the UPA government had not only refused to consider the DMK's views on the US-sponsored resolution against Sri Lanka at the UNHRC but had quietly watered it down.

He also ruled out extending outside legislative support to the UPA, in which the DMK was the largest constituent after the Congress.
