I am not a leader, Alagiri thanks supporters for successful rally

Expelled Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) leader MK Alagiri on Friday thanked his supporters for coming out in large numbers for the memorial rally on September 5.

In a letter written to the cadres, Alagiri said, “I am not a leader, I am not a stage speaker, I am an individual. Heeding to my request I sincerely thank everyone for coming in large numbers to pay homage to my father on his 30th-day memorial rally.”

On Wednesday, Alagiri led a rally of his supporters to pay homage to DMK patriarch M Karunanidhi at his resting place at Marina Beach.

The former union minister claimed that over 1 lakh supporters attended the rally which created a strong impact in the DMK circles and dubbed it as a success.

Since his outburst at Anna Memorial, Alagiri has gone from declaring a war on the DMK to pleading the party leadership for his re-induction.

Alagiri, the eldest son of DMK patriarch Karunanidhi, was expelled from the DMK in 2014 for anti-party activities after he rebelled against his father for projecting his brother as his successor and allegedly making derogatory remarks against party men.
