Stalin, Alagiri meet, DMK and Cong let bygones be bygones
DMK had skipped Cong-drove Oppn meeting on January 13.
Chennai: Differences between the DMK and the Congress in Tamil Nadu that took steps to break the partnership blew over on Saturday with the state Congress boss K.S. Alagiri approaching DMK president M.K. Stalin at Anna Arivalayam, and both the pioneers giving explanations that said the connection between the two gatherings was solid, and that they stand joined in their battle against shared powers.
While Mr Alagiri tongue in cheek told columnists after the gathering that the two chiefs had met to talk about Darbar, the most recent Rajinikant-starrer, he later stated, “We know about the risk to the country from extremist powers and their flexible rulers in the state. The Congress is enduring in its purpose to be with the DMK in crushing them. The union will proceed for the 2021 Assembly decisions.”
A post-meeting explanation by Mr Stalin asked functionaries of both the gatherings to forgo communicating their perspectives on the collusion out in the open.
By proceeding to air their doubts over minor occurrences, both the gatherings will just give grist to the “packs of jackals” out to discover an opening in the DMK-drove collusion and a few news sources to bite the cud, Mr Stalin stated, including that he didn’t need that to occur.
“There have been a couple of undesirable happenings in the partnership after the rustic urban surveys, however our union has gotten the individuals’ order. Both the sides ought not have examined these things in general society. How about we put a full stop and push forward. Shrewd and hungry foxes are trusting that an open door will disband the partnership. I encourage functionaries of both the gatherings to abstain from talking about these issues in the general population,” he said.
Mr Alagiri made it clear that the two heads have concluded that nobody other than the DMK president and the TNCC boss will express their perspectives on the collusion when he was inquired as to whether he had mentioned activity against those – like DMK treasurer Durai Murugan – for denouncing the Congress.
Reviewing the beginning of the discussion, Mr Stalin said it was activated by Mr Alagiri’s announcement over the portion of less seats to the Congress in the panchayat races. The issue could have been settled agreeably, through talks, he included.
“We just said what we wanted to state,” answered Mr Alagiri when inquired as to whether the window ornaments have been pulled down on the crack between the two gatherings.
Mr Stalin acknowledged Mr Alagiri’s “productive” proclamation that the Congress would support and remain by the DMK’s inflexible stance against shared and extremist powers just as their handmaidens.
To an inquiry in the event that he had met Mr Stalin at the command of the Congress central leadership, Mr Alagiri said that the gathering initiative had given him complete opportunity and had not given any requests or warnings.
