The DMK has expelled party patriarch M Karunanidhi’s son M K Alagiri, who was earlier suspended and denied a ticket for the Lok Sabha elections. According to Karunanidhi, he along with general secretary K Anbazhagan decided to expel Alagiri.
Alagiri was expelled by the DMK as he was critical of the party despite his suspension.
This comes after leaders from across the party lines, including those from Congress, BJP and MDMK sought Alagiri’s support. MDMK Vaiko had also met Alagiri over the upcoming Lok Sabha elections owing to his influence in south Tamil Nadu.
This also comes amid reports that Alagiri is set to launch a statewide tour to hold consultations with loyalists across Tamil Nadu as he looks to galvanise them ahead of Lok Sabha polls.
The expulsion comes two months after Alagiri, a former union minister, was suspended from the party for alleged indiscipline in the wake of him publicly opposing any alliance with actor-politician Vijaykant’s DMDK and questioning Stalin’s approach.
