CHENNAI: The Pattali Makkal Katchi (PMK) will not be part of the coalition government to be formed by the Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) in the event of the DMK-led front getting a majority of seats in the Assembly elections, according to S. Ramadoss, PMK founder.

“It is our principled position that we will not join the government,” Dr. Ramadoss told The Hindu, after calling on Chief Minister and DMK president M.Karunanidhi at his residence.

Dr. Ramadoss was responding to a query by The Hindu whether the PMK would join such a coalition set-up in the event of Mr Karunanidhi's observation on the day of polling (April 13) that there could be a coalition government too.

He described the meeting as a courtesy call.

Dr. Ramadoss was accompanied by PMK president G.K. Mani and former Member of Parliament A.K.Moorthy.
