"They do not (DMK led by its working president MK Stalin) appear to want to take me back," he told reporters in Madurai to a question.

Asked about his next course of action, Alagiri said that it would be decided after the 5 September rally in Chennai.

"All these things will be decided after the rally on 5 September. Functionaries from all districts will be consulted and a decision taken," he said.

Alagiri, who has been questioning the leadership of his estranged brother MK Stalin had days ago announced that he would hold a peace rally in Chennai, to the mausoleum of his late father M Karunanidhi.

The former minister was expelled in 2014 by Karunanidhi.
