CHENNAI: It was a day of jubilation for thousands of women cadre of the DMDK gathered at the women’s day celebrations at YMCA grounds. Many of the woman cadre told Express that “the decision to go it alone has doubled our happiness on women’s day.”

P Gajalakshmi, a cadre from central Chennai, said: “We are extremely happy that our leader has stated his position. Now, we will work hard to make him the Chief Minister. After many years, a change of political establishment is what we expect.”

M Sivakami, the women’s wing secretary, said it was his earnest endeavour to work at the ground level that made him a leader par excellence. She recalled his involvement in helping the people affected by the floods.

Kolanthai Theresa (50), the deputy secretary of the party’s women wing in Sivaganga district claimed that ‘Captain’ would definitely listen to the collective voice of his women cadre. “Remember when he was the leader of Nadigar Sangam, he spent his own money for creating self-employment opportunities for women,” she recalled. Having made her point, Theresa said now she was dreaming on what her leader could achieve after becoming the CM.

For S Indra, who came all the way from her village in Villupuram for the event, Vijayakant was her messiah.
