CHENNAI: Putting an end to speculations about his elder son M K Alagiri's return to party fold, DMK chief M Karunanidhi today came down heavily on him for his continuing tirade against the party despite having been expelled and asked party workers to ignore him.

Making it clear that there was no link between Alagiri and DMK, the 92-year-old patriarch said his Madurai-based son was issuing statements and comments that would harm the 'growth of the party' despite his expulsion.

Referring to Alagiri's reported critical comments about the alliance forged by DMK and Congress, Karunanidhi said it was "totally unacceptable".

"He has been using my name for his betrayals and it is condemnable. I appeal to party cadres not to consider his comments. Ignore him and his remarks," he said in a statement.

Recently Karunanidhi's younger son and DMK Treasurer M K Stalin had said that talks regarding Alagiri returning to the party ahead of coming Assembly elections could be a rumour.

DMK had expelled Alagiri, then South Zone Organising Secretary, in March 2014 for alleged anti-party activities.
