Alagiri challenges Stalin’s claim for DMK leadership

It has not even been a week since DMK patriarch M Karunanidhi died and a rebellion in the party has begun to surface. Standing at Karunanidhi’s memorial on Monday, his son MK Alagiri launched an open rebellion against his estranged brother MK Stalin. Claiming that he has the support of the entire DMK cadre, he said that real party members are backing him.

“All the real supporters of the DMK are with me. Only time will give a befitting reply. I am pained at what’s happening,” he said on Monday. The timing of his statement bears significance as it comes just a day ahead of the executive committee meeting that is scheduled to take place on Tuesday where a decision may be taken regarding the elevation of DMK working president MK Stalin to the top post of the party. All members of the committee have been asked to participate in the meeting without fail. It will begin at 10 am at the party headquarters, Anna Arivalayam in Chennai.
