CHENNAI: The DMK youth wing on Wednesday geared up for the 92nd birthday of party chief M Karunanidhi in a grand manner and resolved to celebrate the occasion throughout the State by providing delicious feast and new clothes to the poor.
Contrary to the practice of organising meetings at the party headquarters, youth wing headquarters or any auditorium, the youth wing meet was convened in a star hotel. However, during the meeting, they received the news of the passing away of Murasoli Maran’s mother Shanmuga Sundarathammal. The participants paid homage to Shanmugasundarathammal, who is also the elder sister of Karunanidhi.
A resolution passed at the youth wing meeting said Karunanidhi’s birthday should be celebrated in every city, town, village and wards by hoisting party flags and playing songs in praise of the DMK leader. Seminars and cultural programmes should be arranged throughout the month of June besides arranging medical camps and camps for eye and blood donation. The youth wing also urged partymen to arrange various contests for oratorical skills, essay writing and various games to mark the birthday.
The youth wing resolved to add new members besides renewing the existing members. Listing the economic issues of the people, it urged the members to distribute pamphlets on the various problems faced by the people. Cash prizes and certificates would be distributed to students who occupy the top positions in the Plus Two and tenth standard examinations this year, another resolution said.
