Hitting out at the DMK and M Karunanidhi's heir apparent MK Stalin, MK Alagiri expressed full support for the AIADMK saying they would continue to stay in power and that any party alliance with the DMK would prove futile.
Alagiri in an interview to Thanthi TV said, â€œWhile AIADMK has won 38 seats the last time round, not a single seat has come to DMK, they cannot win with any alliance. DMK is not going to win. And if Stalin is likely to head DMK, the party is definitely not going to win."
On January 30, political circles in Chennai and Madurai were abuzz with a possibility that MK Alagiri, DMK chief Karunanidhi's second son was going to walk back into the party. But soon after, Alagiri's archenemy within the party and MK Stalin said that no discussion was warranted over Alagiri's return. This further put to rest any lingering doubts about Alagiri's return.
