Suspended DMK leader KP Ramalingam joins BJP, says will bring MK Alagiri too


Former Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) MP KP Ramalingam, who was suspended from the party by MK Stalin in March this year, has joined the BJP. MK Alagiri's loyalist KP Ramalingam also said he will try to bring the DMK leader into the BJP too.


KP Ramalingam joined the BJP in the presence of BJP state incharge CT Ravi and BJP state president L Murugan. Pon Radhakrishnan and H Raja were also seen along with the BJP leaders when KP Ramalingam joined the saffron party on Saturday.


After joining the BJP, KP Ramalingam said he will try to bring MK Stalin's brother MK Alagiri into the BJP. "I have close relations with MK Alagiri. I will try to bring him to Bharatiya Janta Party," he was quoted as saying by ANI.

Speaking to India Today TV, KP Ramalingam said he was like a brother to MK Alagiri and hence, he will urge the DMK leader to join the BJP.
