Senior Congress leader Pranab Mukherjee is expected to make a courtesy call on DMK chief M Karunanidhi in Chennai today. This will be the first meeting between the two parties since former textile minister Dayanidhi Maran‘s acceptance over his involvement in the 2G spectrum scam.

Regarding Mukherjee’s visit to Chennai, source close to him said the minister is likely to reiterate to the DMK patriarch that the administration had no role in the Maran incident as the CBI was working directly under the Supreme Court.

The Congress also required sending a message that it was not thinking of snapping ties with the DMK. DMK insiders said top party leaders did not want to be seen as jockeying for ministerial positions.

The DMK on Friday said it had determined not to press for a replacement to fill the job caused by textiles minister Dayanidhi Maran’s resignation on Thursday. The cabinet reshuffles in due next week. Home minister P Chidambaram is also likely to be in Chennai on Saturday.
