ERODE | TIRUPUR: The MDMK led by Vaiko, on Saturday, in rearticulating its political responsibility, declared that it would be part of a DMK-led alliance in Tamil Nadu to defeat the BJP-led NDA at the Centre and the AIADMK in the State in the coming elections.

The state-level MDMK conference at Moolakarai, which began here on Saturday, to celebrate the birth anniversaries of late rationalist leaders Periyar and Anna, besides MDMK’s silver jubilee and the golden jubilee year celebrations of Vaiko’s entry into politics, passed a resolution to this effect on its key political strategy.  

 

The party’s presidium chairman S Duraisamy led the meeting and MDMK treasurer A Ganeshamoorthy inaugurated the conference. The party’s state deputy general secretary Durai Balakrishnan hoisted the party flag in the presence general secretary Vaiko and Mallai C E Sathya, in front of a mammoth crowd. 

Stating that the forces of ‘Hindutva’ and various Hindu outfits have become a threat to India’s unity and secularism, the MDMK resolution charged the Central government with “destroying” democratic institutions by ruling the State “through the Governor.”  “To defeat the BJP-led government in Delhi and its puppet government in Tamil Nadu led by the AIADMK, the MDMK will join the alliance led by the DMK and allied parties,” the party resolved.  

 

The MDMK conference passed as many as 35 resolutions including continuing of the 69 per cent reservation in Tamil Nadu and urging the Centre not to permit Karnataka to construct new dams across the Cauvery including Mekedatu, give up all hydro carbon prospecting in Cauvery delta and implementation of total 
prohibition.
