New Delhi: The CBI move to search the residence of M.K. Stalin, son of DMK chief M. Karunanidhi, was "bound to be misunderstood", Finance Minister P. Chidambaram said Thursday while expressing his "strong" disapproval of the action.
"Normally I do not comment on the working of another department (home ministry), but in this case I have to say that I strongly disapprove of the CBI's action. It is bound to be misunderstood," Chidambaram said.
"I have conveyed my views to the minister in charge and I suggest you put further questions to the minister in charge," he added.
Sushilkumar Shinde is union home minister.
Officials of the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) Thursday carried out a search at Stalin's residence in Chennai.
The search comes two days after the DMK announced its decision to pull out of the Congress-led United Progressive Alliance (UPA) over the central government's stand on the Sri Lankan Tamils issue.
The raid at Stalin's house began around 6 a.m.
