DMDK has no clue on allies

The DMDK’s eighth general council and working committee meeting on Friday failed to enlighten partymen on the way forward.  The meeting had been aimed at discussing the Lok Sabha polls and attempting to hold the ranks of the party together, according to party functionaries. Instead, resolutions condemning the Central and State governments on a variety of issues were passed, apart from one resolution urging the State government to withdraw its defamation cases against party founder Vijayakant.

Sources in the party told Express that many functionaries returned empty handed from the meeting as there was no clear cut indication on who the party would ally with for the Lok Sabha polls.

“There have been media reports that our leader is discussing deals with the DMK. There have also been reports that he is talking to the Congress. We are in the dark. This is making it difficult to face ground level supporters,” said an office bearer from western Tamil Nadu. He added that there was no worthwhile movement on the issue of party MLAs dallying with the ruling party.

It flayed the Centre for failing to act in the Cauvery River water row, the Mullaiperiyar issue, attacks on Tamil Nadu fishermen among others.
