Signs of split in DMK?

The divide in the DMK following its pullout from the UPA government sharpened on Sunday, pitting father against son. Former Union minister MK Alagiri met his father and party chief M Karunanidhi and conveyed his strong opposition to the “manner” in which the DMK had withdrawn its ministers from the Centre. Unhappy with the response he got, the Madurai MP is likely to skip a crucial meeting of the party’s executive committee on Monday.
