MDMK led by Vaiko has agreed to the seat share given by DMK and will be contesting the upcoming elections using the ‘rising sun’ symbol of DMK.
For the first time
The MDMK or Marumalarchi DMK was founded in 1995 by Vaiko after separating from DMK owing to the difference of opinion between himself and Karunanithi the founder of DMK. And now after almost after 27 years, the party is all set to combine with its parent party on the upcoming assembly elections. And more interestingly, this will be the first time the party is actually combining hands with DMK for the first time.
Vaiko yesterday met Stalin at the DMK headquarters to make the official agreement on the alliance and had promised to be secular on principles owing to the betterment of the state and its welfare.
Vaiko also stressed the point of ‘Sanatana Dharma’ or maintaining brotherhood on a common dream or focus. He asked the supporters to forget other differences and follow the path paved by the former leaders EVR, Anna, etc.,
Alliance with AIADMK
MDMK over the years has been a center of controversial alliances where most of its alliance was never mutual and was just eye candy for the majority. MDMK had earlier teamed up with other parties that even include the current ruling party the AIADMK.
With all this history, the party’s current alliance with DMK has been considered highly crucial and might bring back the fortune the party once lost.
What do you feel about the alliance of MDMK with DMK? Will this prove effective for the opposition party?
