Chennai, May 9 : The issue of Dravida Munnetra Kazagham (DMK) chief M Karunanidhi's successor today took an ugly turn when supporters of one of his sons, M K Azhagiri set the office of a local daily on fire in protest against publication of a survey that declared M K Stalin, another son of Karunanidhi, as his political heir.

The survey, which was carried by the local daily, Dinakaran, along with AC Nielsen, gave 70 percent people's approval for Stalin to become the political heir of Karunanidhi and only two percent to M K Azhagiri.

People claiming to be Azhagiri's supporter today burnt the Madurai office of the local daily. Two people reportedly died in the incident.

Azhagiri's supporters also ransacked the office of the daily in Cumbum, Theni, and burnt copes of the newspaper at several places like, Dindigul, Tirunelveli, Virudhunagar and Tuticorin.

Stalin, who is now the Minister for Rural Development and Local Administration in the Tamil Nadu Government, had been the mayor of Chennai and has his father Karunanidhi's support.

Azaghiri is now the Deputy General Secretary of the DMK and has considerable influence in the southern districts of the State.
