Will Alagiri, the former DMK leader and son of party chief, M Karunanidhi make his way back into the party just once before assembly elections?
According to party sources, Alagiri will be celebrating his birthday by meeting DMK chief at Gopalapuram residence and seek his blessings.
But more than nearly a father and son meeting , the birthday reunion could be the ice-breaker in relationship that has soured over a while. Many political analysts in TN believe that bringing back Alagiri to DMK would be in Karunanidhi's advantage as Alagiri is the one who will naturally challenge ascension to the throne.
As Tamil Nadu goes into elections, the 97-year-old harbours ambitions to not just continue leading the party but also to be CM candidate.
Alagiri was expelled from DMK party on March 25, 2014 for his verbal attacks against few senior DMK leaders and party treasurer M K Stalin.
