New Delhi, Nov 21: In what comes as a recent development, MK Alagiri's loyalist KP Ramalingam met Tamil Nadu BJP chief L Murugan and sought time to meet Home Minister Amit Shah in Chennai.
Speculations are rife that ahead of 2021 Assembly elections in Tamil Nadu, MK Alagiri will form a political outfit and may join hands with the BJP.
According to reports, Alagiri is also expected to meet the Home Minister during the latter's visit to the southern state today.
