MK Stalin and MK Alagiri
Chennai, Jan 25: Once again the rift between two sons of the DMK supremo, Karunanidhi has been opened to all. Ahead of the crucial general council meet, which has been scheduled to be held on Feb 3, Karunanidhi's two sons - MK Alagiri and MK Stalin resumed their fight for greater position and power within the party. It seems that the DMK might be divided anytime over the spat between Stalin and Alagiri.

According to DMK sources, Alagiri, who is a Union chemicals and fertiliser minister, threatened to resign from the DMK and also from the union cabinet if Karunanidhi and other top leaders of the party approve Stalin's recent proposals. It has been reported that Alagiri felt threatened by Stalin's latest proposals ahead of the general council meeting. Sources said that Alagiri believes Stalin aimed to weaken and remove Alagiri from the party.

Here it can be mentioned that Stalin, who was the deputy Chief Minister during DMK's tenure in Tamil Nadu, urged the party supremo to appoint him (Stalin) as the working president of party. However, Alagiri claimed that there should not be any change in the positions holding by the leaders.

Here it can be recalled that Karunanidhi's two sons were involved in similar kind of spat when Stalin urged the youth and senior party workers to join a protest campaign against Kalaignar's family politics and its negative impact on DMK.
