After making Durai Murugan general secretary, Stalin gets more powers in DMK

Changes have been made in the DMK’s bylaws giving more powers to the party president M K Stalin. According to the new law, the power to appoint deputy general secretaries has been now given to the president.

So far it was the general secretary who had appointed the deputy general secretaries of the party.

Stalin on Wednesday announced the names of the General Secretary and the Treasurer of the party. Durai Murugan has been elected unanimously as DMK General Secretary. TR Baalu has been elected as DMK Treasurer unanimously.

The DMK’s general council in Chennai on Wednesday dubbed the AIADMK government as “anti-people” and vowed to dislodge it from power and make party president MK Stalin as Chief Minister by winning the Assembly elections next year.

Alleging that the AIADMK regime was tainted by corruption, the party, in its meet presided by MK Stalin, condemned the Centre for ”guarding” such a regime for the past about four years.

“This general council condemns the AIADMK government for causing an overall setback to the socio-economic and industrial growth in Tamil Nadu… for corruption in tenders of all departments,”a resolution said,adding that those behind the “coronavirus pandemic corruption” would be made to answer.
