Alagiri wants action against Stalin

A day after being expelled from the DMK, M Karunanidhi's elder son M K Alagiri on Wednesday said that action should be taken against those who indulge in "wrong doings" apparently pointing fingers at his younger brother M K Stalin.

"I didn't do any crime. I won't relent till action is taken against those who had committed mistakes," he said virtually targeting Stalin.

Alagiri, 63, was the former south zone organising secretary of the DMK. He was expelled from the party on Tuesday for "continuously criticising party leaders and also defaming the party".

Referring to candidates of various political parties, including MDMK supremo Vaiko meeting him in his house and sought his support in the coming Lok Sabha elections, Alagiri said "I have not extended support to any of the candidates, who have met me".
"I did not invite Vaiko to my house. If someone comes to my house, what can I do?" he asked.

After being suspended from party, an unfazed Alagiri met Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and BJP president Rajnath Singh, triggering speculations that he may either support the Congress or the BJP in the election.

It all started when Alagiri, who had expressed reservation over the DMK's possible alliance with Vijayakanth for the April 24 Lok Sabha elections, was suspended from the primary membership of the party on January 24 following an angry spat with his father.

Even as the sibling rivalry intensified with Stalin having a major say in party affairs, causing more annoyance to his elder brother, some of the senior party leaders expressed solidarity with Alagiri.
