With the assembly elections round the corner, ousted DMK leader MK Alagiri on Thursday made a statement claiming that he still enjoys loyalty amongst partymen. He also said that he will speak about his political stand only after two months.
“None of my supporters have been removed from DMK. If they (party) want to do it, they have to remove lakhs of supporters. I will reveal my political stand in two months,” said Alagiri while addressing the media at the Chennai airport.
It was only last week on his 65th birthday, MK Alagiri, DMK chief Karunanidhi’s second son and the party’s erstwhile Madurai strongman, was remored to walk back into the party.
Alagiri has always had a love-hate relationship with the DMK. He was sent to the south by his father in the 1980s, and since then, he has had several ups and downs within the party and electorally, until March 2014 when he was expelled from the party.
