Tamil Nadu, 24/12 (AO Bureau): Elections are due in Tamil Nadu next year. In such a situation the political rift in the state continues. Meanwhile, former DMK chief MK Alagiri is once again in the discussion about political withdrawal. Alagiri is the elder son of former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M Karunanidhi. He was expelled from the party. Significantly, the public of the state is also speculating about the entry of actor Rajinikanth in politics.
Alagiri, who was a Union Minister in the second UPA government, met his mother Dayalu Ammal, who was undergoing treatment at Gopalapuram residence on Thursday. After this, he talked to the correspondents. Alagiri said that he will hold discussions with supporters on January 3 and take a decision on launching a new political party. He said, ‘If my supporters want me to launch a new party, I will do so. But I will not support the DMK. He clarified, ‘I have not been invited to join the party again on behalf of the DMK.’
Reports show that the Bharatiya Janata Party made a lot of effort to bring Alagiri to its side. The special thing is that the BJP is engaged in preparing the road for the upcoming assembly elections in the state.
