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.
