"They are not my supporters. The party has taken action against them," he said to a query, as he emerged out of Karunanidhi's Gopalapuram residence along with his daughter.
    
Alagiri is believed to have visited Karunanidhi to seek his blessings ahead of the Pongal festival. Though he had visited Karunanidhi's residence earlier this week also, he had not spoken to the media then.

The 63-year-old Madurai MP had met his father on Wednesday, a day after being rapped by the DMK president for his remarks against alliance prospects with DMDK.

The party had on Thursday suspended five loyalists of Alagiri over recurring instances of ‘mischievous posters’ in that town.
    
Amidst sibling rivalry between Karunanidhi's sons, Alagiri and M K Stalin, over who is the political heir apparent to their father, the DMK high command had last week dissolved its Madurai Urban unit, replacing it with an ad-hoc body dominated by supporters of Stalin.
