Karunanidhi's remarks come in the wake of reports in a section of media that DMK was holding alliance discussions with DMDK for the coming Lok Sabha polls.

Recently, the 90 year-old leader had welcomed the idea of the two parties striking an electoral tie-up and had even publicly rapped his Madurai-based son and former Union Minister M K Alagiri for opining against the alliance.

Alagiri's younger brother M K Stalin is favourably disposed towards a DMK-DMDK tie-up.
