DMK heir apparent MK Stalin on Sunday appealed to party cadre not to squabble in public on social networking sites.

In a message posted on his Facebook page, Stalin in a polite, but sharp tone, told the party’s online supporters that they should ensure that their differences did not come out in the public domain. Instead, he asked them to focus their energies on popularising the DMK with the internet-savvy youth.

“Few years ago, some forces were spreading lies about the party on many websites. Now, we have an ever rising number of supporters responding to such falsehoods immediately. It is an important task for the party to use the technological tools to showcase to the youth the benefits that the DMK’s efforts have brought to the Dravidian race and to Tamil society,” he said.

He further told the party’s online wing that it should focus on fulfilling its role on the internet, instead of holding public events or birthday functions, which he said, would be taken care of by various other wings of the party.

He urged the DMK’s netizens to avoid arguments or personal attacls in the public domain. He also cautioned against those who caused confusion under the garb of supporting the party.

“I urge you to avoid such unwanted activities and instead do work that is beneficial to the party as the Lok Sabha elections are around the corner,” said Stalin.
