MK Alagiri meets DMK chief Karunanidhi

Chennai, Jan 11 : Former Union Minister and Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) leader MK Alagiri on Saturday met party supremo and his father M Karunanidhi at the latter's residence at Gopalapuram in Chennai.


Before the meeting, Alagiri said he is visiting Karunanidhi to greet him on the occasion of Pongal and not to discuss the political tussle within the DMK.

"I spoke to my father not on political issues but family affairs. He asked me about his grandchildren who are presently in the US," Alagiri told reporters after the meeting.

This comes after Karunanidhi on Thursday suspended five supporters of Alagiri from the party.

However, on Saturday, Alagiri said: "They were not my supporters."

Earlier, the former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister had condemned Alagiri's remarks against Desiya Murpokku Dravida Kazhagam (DMDK) leader Vijayakant.

"I said I would be happy if there was an alliance between the DMK and the DMDK. Mr. Alagiri's remarks against my view are not only regrettable but also condemnable," Karunanidhi was quoted as saying by The Hindu.

In an interview to a channel, Alagiri had said he could not consider Vijayakant as a politician as the leader lacked political decency.

In a veiled warning to Alagiri, Karunanidhi also said 'disciplinary actions' will be taken against those party men who would be violating desirable conduct.

He said they would be removed from the party.

Karunanidhi's two sons - Alagiri and M K Stalin - have been against each other for long time and their relationships touched new low after Karunanidhi decided to appoint his younger son Stalin as his political heir.
