Taking charge of the DMK in Puducherry, newly appointed convener Dr M A S Subramanian said here on Sunday that the party would soon come up with a plan to revive its vote bank in the Union Territory. “We will hold a discussion within the party and will work out a strategy after working out the requirements,” he said.
Addressing mediapersons, Subramanian said it was important for the party to come to power again and work unitedly for the people. He added that he has met all party leaders including those who were also in contention for the post of the convenor and they have all assured their full cooperation.
Asked whether the party would go alone in the upcoming civil body elections as per the proposals of the Karaikal unit convenor A M H Nazeem, Subramanian said it was too early to comment. “We would discuss it with party functionaries of all units and communicate their views to the party high command,” he said. He added that the DMK would face the elections under the guidance of party leaders M Karunanidhi and M K Stalin.
Stating that welfare of the people would be the focus of the DMK, the convenor noted that the party would urge Chief Minister N Rangasamy to get exemption for Puducherry from the All India Medical Entrance Examination. He said that the examination would affect the SC/ST and rural students of the region.
He also demanded that the chief minister deliver on his promise of reinstating the 4,000 retrenched government employees.
