Capt.Vijayakanth of DMDK will be oppsition leader as latest news says
Beleaguered DMK has not only lost its power to rival AIADMK but the grand old Dravidian party also lost its status as the principal opposition party in the state assembly to actor Vijayakanth’s DMDK.
The DMKDK opened its account only five years ago with leader Vijayakanth entering the House as a lone member. Now, he will be heading a 27-member party in the Assembly.
With DMK party president M. Karunanidhi declaring that the people of Tamil Nadu have give him ‘proper rest’, his son and party treasurer, M.K Stalin, is expected to lead DMK in the House.
Much to the embarrassment, the DMK team would be sitting next to Vijayakanth and his deputy. With most of its veterans - as many as 21 ministers - taken off, the party is set to undergo testing times for the next five years in the Assembly.
