Amid strains, Karunanidhi’s veiled warning to son Alagiri

Miffed at Alagiri’s reported remarks against DMK’s possible tie-up with the Vijayakant-led DMDK for the Lok Sabha polls, Karunanidhi said he himself had as party ‘president,’ expressed joy over a possible alliance between the two.

There were reports that Alagiri had suggested against a DMK-DMDK tie-up and if these were true then ‘there is no connection between them and DMK,’ Karunanidhi said, seeking to distance himself from Alagiri’s remarks.

It was upto the Executive and General Council or the ‘authorised high command’ to decide on alliance prospects, he told reporters here.

Alagiri’s remarks were in contrast to the statement made by him welcoming DMK-DMDK alliance, and this was ‘not only regrettable but also condemnable,’ Karunanidhi said.

‘I make it clear that those who make such unnecessary contrasting remarks and thus try to affect party discipline, whoever they are, disciplinary action will be initiated against them and they will be expelled, even from party membership,’ he said, adding, this decision applied to all DMK members at all times.

Karunanidhi’s warning comes a day after Alagiri’s younger brother Stalin snubbed him at
Tiruchirappalli, welcoming his party’s alliance with DMDK besides quipping that he doesn’t read such ‘unnecessary news items,’ when asked about Alagiri’s reported views against any tie-up with Vijayakant’s party.
