M.K.Stalin officially took over the reins of the DMK at a general council session at the Anna Arivalayam. He was elevated as the party’s working President last year.Now he has been crowned President. In his acceptance speech, Stalin asked all the party cadres to join him to defeat the BJP that was trying to paint the nation in saffron colour.
He emulated his father’s style of starting his address. He then said that he is not Kalaignar and he didn’t know how to talk like him but he said that he had the courage to give a try to everything. It remains to be seen whether Stalin will be able to step in his father’s shoes and hold the party together considering the current political scenario.
