Predicting Stalin`s death led to Alagiri`s suspension: Karunanidhi
Zee Media Bureau
New Delhi: DMK chief M Karunanidhi on Tuesday explained the reason behind the sudden suspension of his son MK Alagiri from the party for indiscipline.
In an television interview, Karunandihi said Alagiri used “harsh words” against his younger brother MK Stalin.
"He even said Stalin would die in few months. How can a father tolerate this? I don`t know why Alagiri has nurtured hatred against Stalin," the DMK chief was quoted as saying.
Importantly, he also indicated that Alagiri`s suspension would not revoked very soon and said that the party would take a call on the issue.
Karunanidhi`s statement confirms the view that Alagiri`s suspension, on January 24, from all party posts and primary membership, was not just because he was opposed to the DMK-DMDK alliance.
Stalin, who has been engaged in a tussle with Alagiri over control of the party, had denied any rift with his elder brother and described the action as a party affair.
On his part, Alagiri had accused the party of muffling democratic voices. He said democracy was dead in the party and questioned why no action was taken against his younger brother M K Stalin`s supporters for pasting posters hailing him as future party president.
Alagiri said he was being "rewarded" for seeking justice on certain allegations made by some workers regarding internal elections in the party headed by his father M Karunanidhi.
