TIRUCHY: With prospects high for the former Union Minister MK Alagiri re-joining the DMK, posters displayed by his supporters indicating that Alagiri is to join the ‘Namakku Naame DMK Meetpu payanam’, has created a flutter among the DMK cadre in Tiruchy.

The poster has portraits of the party chief M Karunanidhi, MK Alagiri, the former south zone secretary of DMK, and his trusted lieutenant and former Madurai Deputy Mayor, P M Mannan, with slogans in bold letters- ‘Mudiyattum Sarvaathigaaram’ (Let dictatorship end) and ‘Vidiyattum 2016 il Jananaayagam’ (Let democracy dawn in 2016).

These words indirectly swipe the party treasurer, MK Stalin, as of MK Alagiri followers often claim that the party (DMK) is under the total control of Stalin and is the decision maker.

Tiruchy, often referred to as Stalin’s fortress, has few supporters for Alagiri. However minimal the support, they show their presence during such instances through posters. A few of Alagiri’s supporters protested against the poster displayed by RR Mohan, a trader in Gandhi Market who had recently become active in the Alagiri clan.  “This is unethical and I strongly condemn those who did it “, said M  Venkatachalam, staunch follower of Alagiri.
