VELLORE: Several passengers and passersby waiting at the Arakonam railway station on Monday received an invitation from Pattali Makkal Katchi (PMK) functionaries to the party’s North Regional Conference to be held on July 26 in Vellore.

With betel leaves, arecanuts, fruits, flowers stacked in a plate as thamboolam which is traditional custom for inviting people to special occasions such as marriages, the former union minister R Velu, accompanied by other functionaries extended the invitation to waiting passengers, auto drivers and passersby. The former minister said the July 26 conference will be a turning point for the party politically in the State as it will adopt several resolutions including putting an end to liquor sales in the State, revival of agriculture and ending corruption in the administration.

“We will also seek speedier completion of the Tindivanam-Bangalore rail project, bifurcation of the Vellore district with a new district formation at Tirupattur, establishing farm-based industries in Vellore and Tiruvannamalai districts,” he noted. “People are expecting changes and they will certainly support PMK this time,” he added. State vice-president of the party, M K Murali, Vellore East secretary K Saravanan and senior functionaries were present on the occasion.
