It was oil in fire for the already-suspended DMK leader when he was expelled on the 25th of March for indiscipline in January and was excluded from his party's list of candidature for the national elections. What irritated the supremo further was that despite suspension, Alagiri did not fail to criticize the party in public.
Alagiri, meanwhile, has decided not to take things in silence and has said that although he will not be fighting the elections this year, he would move the court over his expulsion. "No one can say DMK doesn't belong to me. Doesn't mean we would go out. DMK headquarters was built using my hard work too. I will raise questions about the protection of DMK's property," he said.
However, Alagiri's closeness to Congress and BJP and his "modi wave" speech has irked his father, leading the latter to make a frantic move to stub a possible alliance that he would regret in future.
