After a gap of 11 years, the Marumalarchi Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (MDMK) has decided to work with the Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) and support its candidate N. Marudu Ganesh in the Dr. Radhakrishnan Nagar bypoll scheduled on December 21. The leader of MDMK, Vaiko explained an indian media.

While answering to the question ,MDMK chief Vaiko said the decision to support the DMK was made “considering the interests of Tamil Nadu and the Dravidian movement.”

“There is a need to teach a lesson to the All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam regime, which has lost the trust of the people,” Vaiko told reporters in Chennai on Sunday.

DMK Working President MK Stalin welcomed the alliance. The RK Nagar seat fell vacant after its MLA, former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa, died in December 2016.

Asked if the alliance would continue after the RK Nagar bye-election, Vaiko remained non-committal. “This can be taken as a starting point,” he said.

The MDMK chief also lashed out at the Bharatiya Janata Party government at the Centre for “Hindutva and weakening federalism”. He also criticised the AIADMK for its camaraderie with the Centre.
