CUDDALORE: It seems the DMK cadre in Kattumannarkoil are unwilling to heed to the words of their working president M K Stalin, who had warned over banner culture.   

They have put up many banners in the town wishing Kathiravan, son of party district secretary M R K Paneerselvam, on his birthday. The effort is seen as an attempt by low-level workers to win the attention of district secretaries or state-level leaders. However, these increasing number of banners are giving trouble to the public.

In an open letter to party cadre, Stalin had said that the partymen should not fall at the feet of leaders or put up banners praising them with an aim to get things done. He also warned them that strict action would be taken anyone who engages in banner culture, adding that it was irritating the general public.

“If the cadre don’t obey the instructions given by its top leader, what would the general public think of that party?

“At least Paneerselvam should have alerted his supporters over this. Instead of putting up banners, they could have given some assistance to the poor,” said a DMK functionary, who doesn’t want to be named, from Kattumannarkoil.
