The Desiya Murpokku Dravida Kazhagam (DMDK) conduct its much-awaited ‘anti-corruption’ conference with thousands gathering at Erangi village in Ulundurpet on Sunday for the one-day State-level conference.

The DMDK founder-president Vijayakant was received at the Ulundurpet toll gate with the Kerala Chendai melam. The function began around 3 pm with ‘Captain’ hoisting the flag. The entrances to the dais were opened by the DMDK leaders. The entry points had names after  personalities like Periyar, Kamarajar, Anna, MGR and ‘Captain’. 

The conference began with the welcome address by the DMDK MLA and Villupuram district secretary L Venkatesan. Several other MLAs and secretaries of various districts spoke on the importance of the conference.

A discussion titled ‘The reason for public support to Vijayakant’ was the first programme held as part of the conference. Participants spoke about DMDK chief’s policies and about his sterling character. Cultural programmes like folk dance, Bharatanatyam, Thappattam and folk songs were performed.

Vijayakant went on stage around 7.30 pm. Six resolutions demanding the TN government to eliminate unannounced power cuts and solve the problems faced by farmers and weavers were passed.  There were incidents of clashes between security personnel and people who wanted to have a closer look at the ‘Captain’.
