Seeking to put to rest speculations that his brother and former Union Minister M.K. Alagiri could return to the DMK, party treasurer M.K. Stalin on Tuesday said the talk could be a rumour.

“It could be a rumour. He was expelled from the party several years ago. There is no compulsion for me to answer such questions,” he told reporters when asked about “recent news” in a section of media that Mr. Alagiri, who was party’s south zone organisational secretary, may return to the DMK.

Hailed as “Anja Nenjan” (brave heart) by his supporters, Madurai-based Mr. Alagiri was the face of the DMK in southern districts. He was, however, expelled in 2014 for anti-party activities.
