There were wide spread fights between the supporters of Azhagiri and Stalin frequently. The succession crisis came out to a peak when party members loyal to Alagiri [[Dinakaran Attack Case|attacked]] the [[Madurai]] office of [[Dinakaran]] and set it to fire, in which three staff were killed. [[Dinakaran]] is a part of the [[Sun TV (India)|Sun TV]] group owned by [[Kalanidhi Maran]] (son of [[Murasoli Maran]]), the nephew of Karuanidhi. The newspaper published a higher prominence for Stalin over Azhagiri.<ref>{{cite news|url=http://www.dnaindia.com/report.asp?NewsID=1095852|work= DNA India |title= Sun Network accuses Alagiri as being main culprit in Dinakaran attack|accessdate=12 November 2013}}</ref>

Hello,

Kalanidhi maran is actually the grand nephew of Karunanidhi, but not the nephew of his. Please look at this and make correction on behalf of me.

Thank you, ADDEPALLI DATTATREYA +91 9642617247
