Karunanidhi refuses to react to reports about patch up with Alagiri

Chennai: DMK chief M Karunanidhi on Thursday refused to respond to reports suggesting rapprochement with his son and expelled party leader M K Alagiri, saying he doesn't want to feed the media with any information on this matter.

"I don't want to feed the journalists," was the 90- year-old leader's cryptic remark when reporters asked him whether the Madurai-based Alagiri would be readmitted into the party.

Karunanidhi's response comes in the background of reports of a patch-up between him and Alagiri, who was expelled from DMK early this year for indiscipline in the wake of the power tussle in the party's first family involving his Chennai-based sibling and DMK Treasurer M K Stalin.

When asked about Supreme Court's refusal to restrain CBI from filing a charge sheet against his grandnephew Dayanidhi Maran in the Aircel-Maxis deal case, Karunanidhi declined to respond, saying "I am getting to know about this only from you now."
