MK Stalin, DMK treasurer and youth wing leader, was in Puducherry on Monday to select 115 party representatives for the youth wing of the party in 23 Assembly constituencies of Puducherry.
Speaking at the selection drive, he said the overwhelming response of cadres was an indication of the DMK’s strong presence in the Union Territory.
He said that despite the party not being in power, there was much enthusiasm among youth to work for the party. As many as 446 party workers attended interviews.
Though only 115 could be selected, he said that others should not feel bad or think that they were ignored. He promised to accommodate them in other wings of the party, wherever possible. However, he stressed that those above 30 years would not be given representation in youth wing of the party.
