Chennai, Jan 4: DMK leader M K Stalin on Sunday rubbished the reportsthat he has offered to quit as party's treasurer after not being allowed to contest for the post of General Secretary and said he only aspired to retain the post.
"I condemn this strongly and deny such reports completely. Somebody has spread such rumours with malicious intent," he told reporters.
"I would like to state categorically that this has been done deliberately to create confusion among party ranks," he added.
"The truth is that our leader Karunanidhi and K Anbazhagan (former Finance Minister) will file papers for the posts of party president and General Secretary," he said.
He clarified on Twitter by posting: The news of my resignation are mere rumors. The DMK will remain strong and united.

There were also reports that supporters of Stalin want him to become the party's General Secretary by replacing the senior party leader K Anbazhagan.
DMK's organisational polls will be held on Friday, January 9 and the filing of nominations for the post of DMK's president, general secretary, treasurer and four audit committee members will take place on Wednesday, January 9.
Karunanidhi's elder son MK Alagiri has been at loggerheads with his younger son Stalin, since the fallout between the two brothers over power tussle last year.
