Chennai: A day after DMK president M Karunanidhi suspended his son MK Alagiri from the party, the suspended leader on Saturday reportedly said that he will not be contesting elections.
Alagiri further said that despite corruption being prevalent in the party, no probe on the charges have been initiated so far.
The 62-year-old leader further said that he will give evidence proving his charges in Madurai soon.

Alagiri was suspended for indiscipline on Friday for his opposition to party`s alliance with Vijaykanth`s DMDK.

Reacting to his suspension, he told an English news channel that there is no democracy in DMK.

A political family feud between Karunanidhi`s sons Alagiri and MK Stalin has been going on for sometime. With the suspension of Alagiri, the DMK chief has clearly favoured his younger son MK Stalin to take over the reins of the party.
