MK Stalin holds DMK district secretaries’ meeting in son’s office
DMK chief M K Stalin is making every possible strengthen his son Udhayanidhi Stalin’s position in Party. After Udhayanidhi assigned as a Youth wing secretary, Stalin said in meeting in Udhayanidhi’s turf, Anbagam, the youth wing office of the party, which many DMK seniors say, is quite unusual in the party’s working.
The political analyst Raveenthiran Thuraisamy said “The underlining message to the functionaries is that they should give importance to the youth wing and its chief Udhyanidhi. In a party like DMK, it is natural for a scion to emerge at the top.”
He said Udhayanidhi is lucky that there is no opposition to Stalin and his decision in DMK. Period of Karunanidhi, leaders like Asai Thambi, Madhuranthakam Arumugam, Veerapandi Arumugam, and Gingee Ramachandran used to openly oppose the party chief’s decision.
“The delay in Stalin’s elevation to the top should be seen as the reason for Udhayanidhi’s late entry,” said the party leader. On the contrary, Stalin has been nurturing Udhayanidhi ever since he took over the reins of DMK. “Udhayanidhi’s court is growing in the party. Senior leader and district secretaries of the party stood in the queue to felicitate Udhayanidhi after he was appointed the youth wing chief. Many of them had even given representations to the party president requesting him to put Udhayanidhi in charge of the youth wing to re-energies it,” DMKsecretary said. The party source said “media interaction a dicey affair. It can, at times, causes lots of embarrassment too.”
