On Sunday, over the next course of political action, the expelled DMK leader, MK Alagiri held discussions in Madurai with his supporters and associates. Seven years after his expulsion from DMK for his anti-party activities regarding his sibling rivalry with his brother, party chief M K Stalin, he said to his supporters to be prepared for his ‘good decision’.
As in April-May, the Assembly elections in Tamil Nadu is likely to be held, Alagiri’s role is being postulated if he will join the BJP or not. Slamming his brother, Alagiri claimed that Stalin “can never become Chief Minister” of Tamil Nadu as he said, “I will soon announce my decision. The supporters should accept it whether it is a good decision or not.”
Remembering the bypoll victory under his leadership, in 2009 in Madurai in Thirumangalam, Alagiri ensured that his party won by a margin of 40,000 votes when in the state, DMK was in power.
Attacking on the claims of cash distribution, he told that the victory of DMK was ensured only via sheer hard work and he claimed that to win in the Thirumangalam By poll, Stalin and Maran’s brothers begged him to work and help the party. Further, he also claimed that after Karunanidhi, he once told Stalin that “you are everything” and wondered why he was kicked out of the party later.
Criticizing his brother’s supporters who hailed him as “future CM”, Alagiri stated, “Now I say Stalin can never become chief minister. My supporters won’t allow you.”
