Alagiri met Rajnath with support offer

In a significant development, disgruntled son of DMK patriarch M Karunanidhi MK Alagiri has reached out to BJP with an offer of support in upcoming Lok Sabha polls.

Alagiri, who was suspended from his party recently, met BJP president Rajnath Singh for about 45 minutes during his visit to Delhi, sources said. The former Union minister and Singh discussed the current political situation, they said.

Alagiri offered his support for the BJP alliance which also includes DMDK, PMK and MDMK in Tamil Nadu, the sources said. However, there was no commitment from Singh. The Madurai strongman has considerable influence in about seven Lok Sabha constituencies in south Tamil Nadu.
