Madurai: Amid speculation about him campaigning in favour of Narendra Modi after he endorsed the BJP's PM candidate, rebel DMK leader MK Alagiri is soon set to launch a statewide tour to hold consultations with loyalists across Tamil Nadu as he looks to galvanise them ahead of Lok Sabha polls.
Sources indicated that he will meet both leaders and party workers who are “committed to the core values of the party and (were) against authoritarianism”.
A strategy will be evolved “well in advance” of Lok Sabha polls and declared at the appropriate time, sources added.
“ 'Annan' (Alagiri) is facing pressure from supporters not only in the southern districts but across Tamil Nadu.
They want to meet him and have him hear them out,” suspended DMK general council member and staunch Alagiri loyalist, Mubarak Manthiri, told PTI.
