In a fresh development with regard to the controversy surrounding the ‘fake’ letter concerning US visa for Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi,DMK chief M Karunanidhi on Thursday warned of action if any Member of Parliament from his party had signed the letter to US President Barack Obama.
Karunanidhi said in a statement that his party never interfered in Centre’s foreign policy or its internal affairs “and in the same way we don’t accept DMK interfering in the visa issue.”
“While MPs have denied they have signed the letter,the party does not accept them signing it. Sending a signed note is not acceptable to the party. If any of our MPs had signed the letter without discussing the matter with the high command,party will take action against them,” he said.
This came a day after DMK MP K P Ramalingam denied having signed any such letter,pointing that he always signed in Tamil. However,he had no reply when mentioned that his purported signature was in Tamil itself.
A major controversy has erupted over the ‘fake’ letter being written by MPs to Obama,urging him to deny a visa to Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) poll panel chief Narendra Modi.
However,several MPs,including CPI-M leader Sitaram Yechury and CPI MP M P Achutan also denied having signed the letter.
