Chennai: Union Chemicals and Fertilisers
Minister and DMK leader MK Alagiri on Thursday rejected an
allegation by a Tamil Nadu Minister that he was involved in
illegal granite business and challenged him to prove his
charge or quit his Assembly membership.

Industries Minister SP Velumani had yesterday alleged in
the Assembly that Alagiri had swindled huge sums of money in
granite business.

"The Minister should prove his charges or own
responsibility for his false allegations", he said in a
statement here while stating that he was never involved in
granite business.

Alagiri, son of DMK President M Karunanidhi, said he had
written a letter to Assembly Speaker (D Jayakumar) to ask the
concerned Minister to provide proof and evidence for his
allegation.

He said if the Minister failed to do so, he would initiate
legal action against him.
