Chennai: DMDK chief Vijayakanth on Wednesday celebrated his 65th birthday with his party functionaries and leaders of the People’s Welfare Alliance (PWA), including MDMK chief Vaiko and VCK’s Thirumavalavan.

Vaiko, Thirumavalavan, CPI secretary R. Mutharasan and CPI (M) central committee member P. Sampath called on Vijayakanth at the DMDK headquarters here and greeted him with shawls and garlands on his birthday.  

 

A cake was cut on the occasion and saplings were distributed to DMDK workers as part of their birthday celebrations.

Speaking to reporters later, Vaiko said constituents of PWA (MDMK, CPI, CPI-M and Viduthalai Chiruthaigal Katchi) would together fight the civic polls expected to be held by October, as decided earlier. “Preliminary work for fighting polls is on at the district level,” he said.

Thirumavalavan said while MDMK, VCK, CPI and CPI(M) would face civic polls together, he said he was not sure about the decision of DMDK. “We did not discuss with Vijayakanth about the local body polls. He should decide about facing the local body polls as part of the alliance,” he said.

When asked about the suspension of DMK MLAs from the Assembly, he expressed displeasure over the House debates where people’s issue were not discussed. “Suspension of 79 DMK MLAs from the Assembly is a black mark in the political history of the State,” he said.  

DMDK fought the May 16 Assembly polls in alliance with PWF like former Union Minister G.K. Vasan’s Tamil Maanila Congress (Moopanar). After the poll debacle, Vasan walked out of the alliance.
