Minor shake up in DMK’s ranks, DMK chief M Karunanidhi
Chennai – In a minor shake up, DMK dissolved the party’s Madurai Urban division following “indiscipline” and appointed a temporary committee till a new body was elected.
The shake-up was initiated after some of the functionaries were found acting against the party interests and despite warning from DMK chief M Karunanidhi, party general secretary K Anbazhagan said in a statement.
The action comes in the wake of some posters being pasted by supporters of Karunanidhi’s Madurai-based son M K Alagiri in that town, which had made some critical remarks in the context of the party’s general council held last month here. Alagiri did not attend the meeting.
Differences between Alagiri and his Chennai-based younger brother Stalin are well-known.
