Stalin offered to quit owning moral responsibility for the debacle, party sources said.
From Kanyakumari in south to Coimbatore in north, he is attending private family functions of his supporters and wherever he goes he is delivering the defeat DMK message.
The former Union Minister, who was expelled on March 25, is believed to have intentionally kept away when Karunanidhi was in Madurai for campaigning recently.
Asked if he would support any party, Alagiri said, “BJP is going strong. Talks are on… the chances are bright.
When Alagiri was suspended from the party recently, Ritheesh was one of the three elected members to meet him in open defiance to the party leadership.
BJP today welcomed the tacit support of expelled DMK leader M K Alagiri, saying it will help in formation of NDA government at the Centre.
The party had on Tuesday expelled a defiant Alagiri for refusing to abide by the party discipline.
Ever since his suspension and dismissal from the party, Alagiri has been meeting leaders from parties in the NDA and Congress.
Alagiri has refused to relent in his campaign against his brother even after his expulsion from the party.
Says Congress has forgotten the meaning of gratitude; offers no olive branch to Alagiri.
Anyone who lacks gratitude – brother or wife or son or anyone, DMK will not forgive; won’t forget their mistakes, said Karunanidhi.
Alagiri said he had not committed any wrongdoing that warranted his expulsion from DMK.
On March 19, DMK had announced that it would take disciplinary action against those who kept in touch with Alagiri.
The two were never close. This meeting, and the fleeting one at the airport, comes after 21 years.
Present action came close on the heels of damaging comments Alagiri made during a meeting two days ago with his sympathisers in Madurai.
