A day after DMK treasurer Durai Murugan alleged that DMDK functionaries met him and requested to forge alliance, DMDK deputy secretary L K Sudheesh today denied the charges.
“We did not discuss alliance with the DMK yesterday. Durai Murugan is telling lies. Our office-bearers met him for personal reasons,” he said.
He also said that Durai Murugan spoke bad about DMK and its leadership to him. “But I will not reveal those things.”
Sudheesh clarified that the talks are still undergoing with AIADMK and that’s why Vijayakanth did not attend the rally.
Sudheesh said the talks on Wednesday remained inconclusive and the Vijayakanth led party will announce its stand on seat sharing on Thursday or Friday.
Soon after Sudheesh’s press meet, Durai Murugan wondered why the DMDK leader talked like this.
“They came yesterday and spoke about alliance. I don’t want to hurt the DMDK more,” he added. On Wednesday afternoon, ahead of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s rally, the senior DMK leader declared that he sent back a DMDK delegation who wanted to team up with DMK instead of the AIADMK because the DMK has no seats left to give.
And when asked if Stalin held the same view, Duraimurugan quipped that Stalin, who is out of town, was taking a nap when he called him, and that DMDK wasn’t important enough for him to wake the party chief up.
