DMK president M Karunanidhi on Thursday hinted that the party may not accept M K Alagiri’s demand for revoking disciplinary actions against his loyalists for possible conciliatory talks.

“When those in DMK makes frivolous complaints against executive members or district secretaries, leading to police taking actions, the party cannot just keep looking at that,” he said in an apparent reference to some police complaints made by Alagiri loyalists against some DMK leaders.

Karunanidhi’s remark comes hours after his elder son Alagiri demanded that the suspension of 10 of his loyalists be revoked for possible conciliatory talks.

Asked about the status of alliance talks between DMK and DMDK, he said he was not aware of it.
