Former Union Minister M.K.Alagiri on Tuesday said to the press & media that his part will be present in the upcoming Tamil Nadu Assembly Elections.
He was in Madurai to offer condolence to the family of a DMK party member. When the press members asked him about the rumours that there could be an alliance between him and BJP, he dismissed that and said all such things are just rumors. He even said there were talks earlier that he was going to meet Amit Shah when he was in Tamil Nadu, but that did not happen.
When asked that that insiders are saying that very soon he (Alagiri) could re-unite with DMK and also be given a good posting, he said “that is not true. Regarding the reunion with DMK, I will discuss with my supporters first and then make announcements”
Regarding the chances of starting a new party, he said ” in the days to come, you will come to know about it.”
M.K. Alagiri was expelled from DMK in 2014 while former Chief Minister Karunanithi was its President. He is considered as a very powerful political personality in Madurai but since his expulsion from the party, he has been maintaining a low-profile in the political arena.
His announcement that this election will see him play a part is sure to send waves to all eyeing for victory in the upcoming assembly election.
