MK Alagiri targets Stalin, says will not contest Lok Sabha poll

MK Alagiri targets Stalin, says will not contest Lok Sabha poll
Sticking to his stand, Alagiri said he had not committed any wrongdoing that warranted his expulsion from DMK.

Alagiri, who was sacked by his father and DMK chief M Karunandhi on Tuesday, said he would not contest the coming elections and predicted a bad show for DMK in the hustings, saying it may not win more than a couple of seats. Speaking to the press at the airport here, a sulking Alagiri said, ‘I didn’t do any crime. I won’t relent till action is taken against those who had committed mistakes,’ obviously targeting Stalin.

The Southern party strongman, who wields considerable influence over DMK cadres and has the capability to derail the party’s prospects, also questioned the charges against him for MDMK chief Vaiko’s visit to his residence two days ago.

‘I did not invite Vaiko to my house. If someone comes to my house, what can I do?’ he asked.
Alagiri, who has been denied a ticket, said he would not contest the coming elections.

Aggrieved by actions of Alagiri, whom candidates from Congress, BJP, DMK and MDMK had met seeking support for the 24 April Lok Sabha elections and some of his comments on the party’s bleak electoral prospects, Karunanidhi had dismissed his son from the party.
