With his reported comments about DMK on the Kudankulam nuclear plant issue rubbing it the wrong way, Union Minister V Narayanasamy on Friday sought to assuage the irked feelings of party chief M Karunanidhi, saying that ties between Congress and its ally are 'stronger'.
Disputing Narayanasamy's reported comments to a Tamil weekly that AIADMK consistently supported the project but the DMK had changed, Karunanidhi said yesterday his party was not against the project and it always supported industrial growth in a scientific manner.
"We are not against developmental projects like Kudankulam Nuclear Power Plant. We are in favour of industrial growth in a scientific manner," the DMK chief had said.
In a statement, Narayanasamy said his comments had been published in such a manner so as to create a rift between Congress and DMK. "What I said was that DMK is extending full support to the project and that the Tamil Nadu Chief Minister is cooperating with the project," he said.
