CHENNAI: Ruling AIADMK today termed DMK Treasurer M K Stalin as "power hungry" and dubbed as a "drama" his recent state-wide campaign to mobilise support for his party ahead of assembly elections due early next year.

"He is power hungry, he enacted a drama through his 'Namakku Naame' tour, boiled paddy will not sprout, and his tactics cannot stand, succeed in front of our Mother of Wisdom (Jayalalithaa)," AIADMK said in a write-up in its mouthpiece Dr Namadhu MGR.

The sharp attack comes against the backdrop of sustained criticism by the DMK, including Stalin, of AIADMK regime's handling of rain and flood-related issues.

DMK had also demanded convening of a special session of the state Assembly to deliberate the "extraordinary circumstances casued by the rains and deluge."

Priding itself as a party of "one crore soldiers", AIADMK said Stalin's tactics will not succeed. The ruling party has one crore members on its rolls.

It also lambasted Tamil Nadu Congress Committee president E V K S Elangovan.

Stalin undertook the tour, aimed at connecting with the people, in September-November.
