Unconfirmed Indian media reports indicate that former Tamil Nadu chief minister M Karunanidhi and his DMK party have decided to pull out of the Indian Central government.

The DMK party had previously requested the central government to support the US-sponsored resolution on Sri Lankan war crimes before the UN Human Rights Council.

However, the Indian government has not made its final decision regarding this issue.

Media reports indicate that the party has decided to leave the government at an informal meeting of top DMK leaders at party chief M Karunanidhi's residence yesterday.

DMK leaders wanted the party to withdraw its ministers from the Manmohan Singh government last Tuesday and support the government from outside.

However one group of DMK members felt that any such strong decision should be taken only after March 23 when the US resolution is put to vote.

DMK party leader Karunanidhi and several others however are understood to favour hard line.
DMK parliamentary leader TR Baalu and some party MP's are likely to raise the issue in the Indian Parliament today as well.

However, India remains on the timeline of expressing it’s stance on the 22nd of this month.
