Premalatha, wife of actor-politician and DMDK founder Vijayakanth, was on Friday unanimously elected as the treasurer of the party.
She was made the treasurer of the political outfit today in a meeting organised by the party high command at its Koyambedu headquarters. It is to be noted that Premalatha has not held any post in DMDK prior to this move.
A resolution electing Ms Premalatha Vijayakanth treasurer was adopted at the high level committee meeting of the party chaired by DMDK president and general secretary Vijayakanth at the DMDK office here.
Though Premalatha has been actively involved in party affairs and vigorously campaigned in the Assembly and Lok Sabha elections, this was for the first time she was given a party post.
The high-level DMDK functionary meeting today was headed by Vijayakanth and the party’s State and district leaders were in attendance.
Vijayakanth, who is DMDK’s president and holds the post of general secretary has been made its permanent general secretary. V Elangovan was made the praesidium chairman and Azhagapuram Mohanraj has been appointed as the DMDK propaganda secretary
