"Some forces in the party are not allowing Kalaingar (Karunanidhi) to function as party president. They are harassing the president of the party," he told a large gathering of supporters, in remarks seen as aimed against his younger brother.

The DMK South Zone Organising Secretary, who convened the meeting of his supporters to decide on his future course of action amid speculations that he might float his own outfit, narrated the sequence of events leading to his suspension.
