DMK committee Meeting on Today (Aug 14)
The Dravida Munnetra Kazhgam (DMK) will hold a meeting of its executive committee on Tuesday for the first time since the death of its leader M Karunanidhi a week ago amid a claim by his estranged son MK Azhagiri that he has the support of his father’s “true and loyal supporters”.
A senior DMK functionary said on the condition of anonymity on Monday that a resolution paying tribute to Karunanidhi would be passed at the executive committee’s meeting to be chaired by MK Stalin, the party’s working president and treasurer.
Both Stalin and Azhagiri were at Karunanidhi’s Gopalapuram home on Monday to observe the leader’s seventh-day mourning rituals with other family members. Selvi, Karunanidhi’s daughter, is believed to have brokered peace between the brothers for the duration of the mourning.
