CHENNAI: Acting on its recent resolution at the high-level working group meet to restructure district units and galvanise party cadre for effective functioning after its rout in the Lok Sabha polls, DMK today announced the formation of a six-member committee to make them function effectively.
The committee has been formed to strengthen DMK at district units, besides making them work efficiently, a party statement said.
The committee members are S Thiruvengadam, T S Kalyanasundaram, R Rajamanickam, former minister Thangam Thennarasu, MLA, advocate K S Radhakrishnan and S L T Sachidanandam, it said.
Formation of the committee was in line with one of the resolutions passed at the party's June 2 high-level working committee, chaired by DMK President M Karunanidhi.
The committee will also have the task of identifying deficiencies noticed during the April 24 LS polls and recommend corrective measures.
