Chennai: In a minor shake up, DMK on Saturday dissolved the party`s Madurai Urban division following "indiscipline" and appointed a temporary committee till a new body was elected.

The shake-up was initiated after some of the functionaries were found acting against the party interests and despite warning from DMK chief M Karunanidhi, party general secretary K Anbazhagan said in a statement.
The action comes in the wake of some posters being pasted by supporters of Karunanidhi`s Madurai-based son MK Alagiri in that town, which had made some critical remarks in the context of the party`s general council held last month here. Alagiri did not attend the meeting.
Differences between Alagiri and his Chennai-based younger brother Stalin are well-known.
