Alagiri vs Stalin row: Today the next President of DMK will decide?



Chennai (Tamil Nadu) [India], Aug 28 (NT): Late Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) president and former Tamil Nadu chief minister M. Karunanidhi's sons MK Alagiri and MK Stalin will cross the swords with each other in the party presidential election on Tuesday.

The place of DMK president has been lying vacant after the death of Karunanidhi on August 7. Presently, Stalin is holding the post of working president in the DMK while Alagiri was expelled from the political group in March 2014 by Karunanidhi for defamatory attacks on veteran party members and carrying out anti-party actions.

Stalin filed nomination for the post of party president on Sunday. Hours after that, Alagiri stated he will take decision on the future course of action after the by-elections are declared.

"What do I do? You want me to go and propose his name? We will see what to do when bypolls are announced," Alagiri stated.

The political clash between the brothers got yet more extreme after Alagiri on August 13 asserted that all the supporters in Tamil Nadu are on his side and are encouraging him.

Established by C. N. Annadurai in 1949, DMK was a separate from the Dravidar Kazhagam that was widely known as Justice Party until 1944. This political group had been headed by Karunanidhi from 1969 until his demise in August. (NT)
