DMK-Wrath

DMK functionaries and cadre of party strongman Durai Murugan rattled the election campaign of their ally party candidate R Abdul Rahman of Indian Union Muslim League (IUML) on Saturday.

Venting out their ire, a group of DMK cadre stopped Rahman’s car and broke its windshield at Kilvaithinankuppam bus stand along Gudiyattam-Katpadi road. The incident occurred around 3.50 pm when the IUML candidate was heading towards Gudiyattam to take part in a candidate introduction meet organised by the DMK.

Before the incident went out of control, former Ranipet MLA and DMK district secretary R Gandhi pacified the partymen. In the meantime, the car moved away and Rahman alighted from the vehicle to board another one.

However, the incident that happened in full public view has revealed the disappointment and anger of the DMK men against non-allotment of the Vellore seat for their party, particularly for Durai Murugan’s son Kathir Anand.

The angry party men also abused Rahman alleging that he had done nothing for the constituency or addressed the public issues.

The situation worsened at Gudiyattam when DMK men called IUML as ‘betrayers’ for refusing to give up Vellore seat for their party. Several DMK men criticised Rahman and his party for doing nothing for the constituency. They fumed that DMK cadres are not a piggyback for IUML anymore.
