Chennai: Union Minister for Chemicals and
Fertilisers M K Alagiri Wednesday said that he had not offered to
resign from the Union Cabinet or from the post of DMK`s south
zone secretary.

Talking to reporters at the Chennai airport before
leaving for Delhi, Alagiri said the DMK Chief and his father M
Karunanidhi had already replied on the reports of his threat
to resign.

Alagiri said he was not in the habit of asking for
party position but if he was given any post, he would
definitely accept it and do his best for the party.

Asked whether any DMK nominee would be inducted in the
proposed expansion and reshuffle of the union ministry,
Alagiri shot back, "Am I the Prime Minister to talk about
cabinet berths for the DMK".

He also made it clear that he had not demanded party
action against former Telecom Minister A Raja for his alleged
role in the 2G spectrum allocation scam.
